Some of you guys may remember I brought a book by Stefan Sagmeister (Austrian designer) in for my “show and tell” last semester. Well I don’t think my interest in this guy has ever stopped. His design studio “Sagmeister & Walsh” is a small design firm based in NYC. Jessica Walsh, an “up and coming” designer who has won many awards, was made partner at the age of 25.
I just simply find their designs to be interesting. The “Culture” book for BMW has hidden wheels, so you can drive the book around with the provided remote. The Deitch book is about an art gallery in NYC. From the website:
“The viewer can eat off the cover of Live the Art, an extensive survey of our favorite gallery in New York, Deitch Projects. Every custom made installation throughout Deitch’s extensive history is depicted on its own spreads, from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Keith Haring, from Venessa Beecroft to Paul McCarthy, from Shepard Fairey to Barry McGee.
