Founded in 1928 as a «living diary» by the great Milanese architect and designer Gio Ponti, domus has been hailed as the world’s most influential architecture and design journal. With both style and rigor, it has offered consistent coverage of major themes and stylistic movements in product, structure, interior, and industrial design. In this fresh reprint of all 1950s issues, the magazine brings its visual and intellectual clarity to an era of post-war optimism. As memories of conflict receded, architecture and design sought new forms, materials, and applications, as well as international dialogue. domus captured the mood with features on Le Corbusier’s design of the United Nations Building in New York; the Case Study Houses of Charles and Ray Eames; Richard Neutra in California and Oscar Nierneyer in Brazil. Other highlights include office machines by Olivetti, furniture by Ray and Charles Eames, ceramics and lights by Ettore Sottsass, and the Herman Miller Showroom by Alexander Girard in San Francisco
