O'Keeeffe, Linda Brilliant: White In Design

Monacelli 2011

Book ID: 98122

Brilliant: White in Design examines the spectrum of colors and talents inherent in white, exploring how it is used, and viewed, in art, design, architecture, and nature. Noted design writer Linda OÕKeeffe parses the language of white and considers its strengths and, at times, its weaknesses. She shows that living with white has soothing rewards and dust-collecting drawbacks; that beige is not a four-letter word but a glamorous alternative to its more pristine counterpart; that designing with white reduces everything to pure form; and much more. In more than 250 photographs, OÕKeeffe showcases work, both recent and historic, from around the worldÑFrance, Japan, Spain, England, Mexico, Canada, South AfricaÑand across the United States. Designers and artists include Jonathan Adler, Orlando Diaz-Azcuy, Andy Goldsworthy, Kelly Hoppen, Hugh Newell Jacobsen, Richard Meier, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, AndrŽe Putman, Robert Ryman, Philippe Starck, Kelly Wearstler, and Vicente Wolf.
