Overview

The first comprehensive monograph on the limited-edition creations by Mattia Bonetti, a trailblazer bridging the gap between art and design. Highly beloved and collected by forward-looking tastemakers—Christian Lacroix, Philip Johnson, David Whitney, and Reed Krakoff, among others—Mattia Bonetti’s seductive designs have been accessible only to the privileged few, until now. Quirky, poetic, colorful, and exquisitely crafted, Bonetti’s works hover between function and quixotic form, evocative of history but not tied to any school of art or design. This volume collects Bonetti’s limited-edition furniture designs throughout his thirty-year career, through photography by Krakoff in residential interiors, galleries, and Bonetti’s workshop; revealing color sketches; and dramatic black-and-white portraits of Bonetti and his team of craftsmen. Comprehensive in scope, Mattia Bonetti shows for the first time the whimsical world of this highly acclaimed Swiss-born, Paris-based designer. Essays by Gloria von Thurn und Taxis, Marie-Laure Jousset, and Jacques Grange, as well as a provocative conversation with Adrian Dannatt, further illuminate Bonetti’s playful synthesis of opposites and insightful use of naturalism and modernism across art and design.
