PLUS an 80 page MILANO SPECIALE, including the phenomenon of hidden master Luigi Caccia Dominioni, elaborate Seminato floors photographed by Delfino Sisto Legnani, Oeuffice’s table centerpieces reinterpret urban motifs at the domestic scale, a survey of emerging artists who root their practice in traditional Italian design, backstage with the visionary design gallerists Antonia Jannone, Nina Yashar, Luisa delle Piane, Lella Valtorta, Clio Calvi, Lilia Laghi, and Rossana Orlandi, the evanescent architecture of this season’s biggest fashion shows, personal musings from leaders of top design companies, Alessandro Mendini’s stroll through Monumentale Cemetery, and an exclusive portrait of Milanese power couples by artist Francesco Vezzoli.
The genesis of Dover Street Market’s retail fantasy (seen through the lens of artist Alex da Corte), the architecture of Matthew Barney, how Apple is changing the way we see the world, the world of Studio Formafantasma, a tour of the headquarters of Johnson Publishing Company in Chicago with artist David Hartt, a full-on luxury lifestyle immersion of total looks, and so much more.
PIN–UP is a magazine that captures an architectural spirit, rather than focusing on technical details of design, by featuring interviews with architects, designers, and artists, and presenting work as an informal work in progress – a fun assembly of ideas, stories and conversations, all paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork. Both raw and glossy, the magazine is a nimble mix of genres and themes, finding inspiration in the high and the low by casting a refreshingly playful eye on rare architectural gems, amazing interiors, smart design, and that fascinating area where those areas connect with contemporary art. In short, PIN–UP is pure architectural entertainment!
