'Beautifully presented...full of nuggets of design wisdom. Super.' (IDFX Interior Design) 'Supernatural is an apt title for the first monograph dedicated to Ross Lovegrove's oeuvre. The British artisan endows such mundane objects as water bottles and teapots with an ethereal, luminescent, and almost ghostly quality. The work speaks to a singular talent that seems of another world.' (House Beautiful) 'It's hard not to love visionary Ross Lovegrove. Forget groceries - splurge on this monograph of his complete work instead! One of the world's most pre-eminent product designers, Lovegrove's signature output will astound as his text informs. A must! A must! A must!' (Elle Decoration) 'Tightly edited ... provides as much of an insight into [Lovegrove's] future as it does into his past...Supernatural differs from the usual monograph in its sense of purpose.' (Blueprint) 'Beautiful exploration of [Lovegrove's] inspiring creations.' (Daily Telegraph) 'If there is a prize for the most beautiful book on design, this one has to be in the short list. Phaidon, a publisher noted for quality production, has excelled itself with this silver and white volume that matches the elegance of Lovegrove's creations.' (Uptown) 'The latest scripture on design isn't just a flashy coffee table book. Supernatural: The Work of Ross Lovegrove offers those fascinated with shape and form a thoughtful and practical insight into the designer's inventive mind.' (CITY)From the Publisher:
Supernatural presents the work of Ross Lovegrove, one of the most interesting and fascinating of the contemporary designers. His work ranges from furniture to high-tech products, from waterbottles to airplane seats, and explores the creation of sculptural and organic shapes using sophisticated technology and materials. In recent years Ross Lovegrove has worked on a design concept that he likes to define as 'organic essentialism', inspired by elements and aesthetics taken from the natural world and reshaped in futuristic forms. His interest in this sort of new naturalism, which he terms 'Supernatural', is accompanied by research into new materials, new applications and new methods of production. This combination of archetypal inspiration and up-to-date technology makes him one of the most interesting and unusual figures in the design world. Written by the designer himself, this is the first book to be dedicated solely to Lovegrove's work. Supernatural is a unique exploration of his mode of design, providing insights into his motivations and approach to the creative process.
