Modern Originals At Home With Midcentury European Designers

Modern Originals: At Home with MidCentury European Designers

Un nuovo libro per la  fotografa Leslie Williamson: “Modern Originals: At Home With Midcentury European Designers“: uno sguardo intimo nelle case e  negli studi di alcuni dei designer più noti d’Europa, tra cui Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto , Carlo Mollino, Gae Aulenti e Finn Juhl, accanto a nomi meno noti come Roland Rainer, Joseph Nemec e Renaat Braem. Tra loro anche Lino Sabattini. Quest’ultima opera di Leslie segue il primo libro, “Handcrafted Modern: At Home With Midcentury Designers” (Rizzoli, 2010). Entrambi i titoli sono parte di un progetto più ampio iniziato dalla fotografa quasi 10 anni fa. “Ho fatto un elenco delle case di tutti gli architetti e designer che desideravo visitare nella mia vita”, spiega. “Sono sempre stato un fan del design, ed ero curiosa di vedere come queste persone – a cui amo ispirarmi – vivano.”

Photographer Leslie Williamson’s new book “Modern Originals: At Home With Midcentury European Designers” offers an intimate look at the homes and studios of some of Europe’s most known designers, including Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto, Carlo Mollino, Gae Aulenti and Finn Juhl, alongside lesser known names like Roland Rainer, Joseph Nemec and Renaat Braem. Among those Lino Sabattini. This work follows the path of Williamson’s first book, “Handcrafted Modern: At Home With Midcentury Designers” (Rizzoli, 2010). Both titles are part of a larger project Williamson began almost 10 years ago. “I made a dream list of the homes of all the architects and designers I wanted to visit in my lifetime”, she explains “I’ve always been a fan of design, and I was curious to see how these people — whose work I love and am inspired by — lived themselves.”
