Description: Milano: Electa, 2011. 29cm., hardcover, 159pp. with numerous color photos. Italian-English text. Summary: This company became cutting edge thanks to its involvement with the finest architects and designers of both style and communication (Gae Aulenti, Vico Magistretti, Angelo Mangiarotti, Annig Sarian. Motomi Kawakami, Mauro Pasquinelli, Gerd Lange, Antonello Mosca, Michele De Lucchi, Bruno Rota, King & Miranda, Lucci & Orlandini, Enrico Franzolini, Vittorio Prato, Bob Norda and, more recently, Paolo Piva and Ennio Arosio) but also by working successfully with the great masters of photography. In the 1970s, Aldo Ballo expressed the original Tisettanta style in the best way possible by highlighting products such as the Alisso bed, the Thalia chair, the M1 table and the Multiplo system, to mention but a few; in the early 1990s, Helmut Newton produced three stylishly sensual photographs that turned as many products into true icons: the Zen bed, the X-Elle cupboard and the Metropolis bookcase. This mix celebrates an important moment - Tisettanta's 40th anniversary and a story filled with major achievements, serious crises, famous names and furnishings that are still remembered by many. It is also the story of the many people who have worked and lived through important times with Tisettanta. Four decades that took the contemporary Italian lifestyle all over the world.
