Editorial Reviews


'Designing a design monograph is bit of a balancing act ... Trust Irma Boom to get it spot-on with this gorgeous collection ... The book's soft binding, untrimmed paper and tactile layered-vinyl cover illustration provide subtle nods to the unexpected and craft-influenced elements that have become Jongerius's signature; inside, the aspects of Jongerius's practice that set her apart are all proudly on display ... It's a book almost as covetable as the design it sets out to celebrate; if Hella Jongerius is a misfit, fitting in has never seemed less desirable.' Grafik 'a wonderfully tactile and detailed showcase ... Like much of Jongerius' work, this monograph has the mark of the maker: deliberately dynamic and demonstrative it is a wonder to behold.' Aesthetica

the interview is very intense and dynamic, it is clearly a good way to present Hella Jongerius'work. And the graphic design made by Irma Boom completes it.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought a used version that was supposed to be in good shape. I opened it and it is a non mint copy. On this particular copy, this means the color throughout the book is terrible and it is missing pages. Which if you know and love Hella's work, the color is an important part of the design. I have seen the book before and was blown away by the amazing content and graphics/color. This non mint copy was not a part of the used book description, so I am not happy with my purchase.
