Selected WorksBook - 2017
Jonathan Olivares Selected Works is a compilation of furniture designs, interior spaces, exhibitions, and essays realized by the American designer Jonathan Olivares over the first decade of his Los Angeles-based practice. Widely recognized as one of the emerging leaders of contemporary American design, the combination of activities that comprise Olivares' practice is unique among his contemporaries, and offers a model for a design practice that reflects upon and engages 21st-century industry and design culture. This book is an indispensable resource for enthusiasts of the contemporary design practice and includes Olivares' work for international design companies such as Knoll, Kvadrat, and Vitra, spaces and exhibitions at the Le Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, the Vitra Design Museum, and the Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, essays published in Domus, Abitare, and Apartamento, and collaborations with Jasper Morrison, Johnston Marklee, and Pernilla Ohrstedt. Contributions include an introduction by Bobby Tigerman, LACMA curator of Decorative Arts and Design, and exclusive photography by Zoe Ghertner and Daniele Ansidei.
