Project Vitra

New book edited by Cornel Windlin and Rolf Fehlbaum (chairman of Vitra), takes a comprehensive look at the company's history and principles and what it stands for today. We thoroughly recommend it. Not only is it great to look at and flip through its also a great read. A chapter that immediately fascinated me was a look at the Vitra headquarters in Basil, where the famous museum can be found. The photography (Paola de Pietri, Olivio Barbieri, Gabriele Basilico and Giovanni Chiaramonte) is effortlessly beautiful and descriptive: showing how the different buildings on the campus relate to one another as well as how they are used.

The book uses a wonderful range of imagery and paper stocks to tell its story, and the typography is faultless. Definitely one for the bookshelf.
