Over the past several months PIN–UP has gathered all of the feature interviews that were ever published in the magazine since the first issue came out in November 2006. After carefully editing them they were compiled into one comprehensive, elegantly designed 450-page paperback volume simply called PIN–UP INTERVIEWS. Published by powerHouse Books, there is no comparable compilation found today with such a stunning array of contemporary design talent collected in one place. It’s an indispensable source for all lovers of today’s brightest architectural and design ideas.
Included in PIN–UP INTERVIEWS are the architects David Adjaye, Shigeru Ban, Ricardo Bofill, David Chipperfield, Zaha Hadid, Junya Ishigami, Rem Koolhaas, Peter Marino, Richard Meier, and Ettore Sottsass; artists Daniel Arsham, Cyprien Gaillard, Simon Fujiwara, Boris Rebetez, Oscar Tuazon, Andro Wekua, and Robert Wilson; and designers Rafael de Cárdenas, Martino Gamper, Rick Owens, Clémence Seilles, Hedi Slimane, and Bethan Laura Wood.
PIN–UP Interviews is the first book produced by PIN–UP and will be available worldwide as of October 1st, 2013. Get your copy now on Amazon.
“A mesmerizing book of interviews that reads as addictively as a thriller.”
— Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery, London
“As I always enjoy reading PIN–UP’s interviews in the magazine, not least as they either introduce me to unfamiliar, but unexpectedly intriguing subjects, or shed new light on familiar ones, I am delighted to rediscover them in this book.”
— Alice Rawsthorn, design critic and author of “Hello World: Where Design Meets Life”
“‘Writing about music is like dancing about architecture’ — The PIN–UP anthology is the only mirror ball that can rock your sitting room.”
— Francesco Vezzoli, artist
“Few magazines exhibit the quality of disciplined irreverence and visual panache the way PIN–UP magazine does. Felix Burrichter’s timely intervention into the staid world of architectural entertainment elevates and enlivens the genre. The new PIN–UP interview bible is a must read, it is a collection of who and what is relevant in design and architecture now.”
— Okwui Enwezor, Director Haus der Kunst, Munich
“The 21st Century has never looked or felt better, thanks to PIN-UP.”
— Michael Stipe, artist
“A bunch of pink elephants turning pink.”
— Eva Franch i Gilabert, Director Storefront for Art & Architecture, New York
