> ‘Pakhalé’s work exemplifies how crafts and industrial design can come together in the dimension of human nature’ – Paola Antonelli
> First comprehensive monograph devoted to international renowned designer Satyendra Pakhalé
> ‘Satyendra Pakhalé is a poet of form and materials. Experiencing his work is a joy.’ - Giulio Cappellini
Selected as one of L’Uomo Vogue magazine’s 80 most influential creative people, Satyendra Pakhalé (1967) stands at the intersection of the diverse currents shaping contemporary design. His design work is an act of unity going beyond such binaries as high and low tech, industrial production and traditional crafts, functionality and poetic significance. Satyendra Pakhalé: Culture of Creation, the first comprehensive monograph devoted to his work, explores the way that the designer navigates these currents on multiple levels.
Essays by leading design thinkers, Juhani Pallasmaa, Paola Antonelli, Jacques Barsac, Ingeborg de Roode, René Spitz, Tiziana Proietti, Aric Chen and Stefano Marzano, illustrate the world view and intellectual position underpinning the designer’s ‘culture of creation’. Contributions from leading industry and cultural figures, such as Alberto Alessi, Gabrielle Ammann, Giulio Cappellini, Cristiano Crosetta and Vittorio Livi portray him at work. Close-up encounters with specific design processes give insight into his studio practice, while stunning imagery complete a book that can be enjoyed on many levels – a portrait of a unique ‘culture of creation’.
