by Claudia Moreira Salles, 2013
Born in 1955, one of Brazil's most important contemporary designers, Claudia Moreira Salles, combines traditional Brazilian craft with technical precision in her elegant interiors, and wooden, concrete, stone and metal furniture. In this fully illustrated volume, Salles describes how she came to create the selection of pieces made over the past decade, revealing, in her own words, her creative process and her influences, from the minimalism of Donald Judd and the modernism of Mies van der Rohe to Brazilian colonial architecture. With a new interview conducted by New York•based curator and design critic Karen Stein, an illustrated chronology and technical drawings for all of the projects surveyed, Claudia Moreira Salles is the most up•to•date publication on this critical figure in contemporary design, and an essential reference for professionals, students and design lovers.
