Description

Pieces of Aalto – A Visual Round Trip is based on an imaginary conversation between Japanese designer Akira Minagawa and his idols Alvar and Aino Aalto. Minagawa chose images from Artek’s archives, depicting his favourite Aalto products and architectural shapes, and used as a starting point for his own sketches that turn the familiar items and shapes into something new and creative. The book presents Minagawa’s imaginative drawings side by side with the original pictures, creating a visual dialogue between the designer and the iconic power couple of Finnish design and architecture. The book is part of Artek’s FIN/JPN collection that celebrates the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Finland and Japan.
