Introducing the second-edition, hardcover version of Sam Chermayeff [et al.]: Creatures, edited by Moritz Küng!
A must-read, according to Susan.

This book looks back through nearly two decades of experimental projects undertaken by the Berlin-based architect Sam Chermayeff and his collaborators—pieces of furniture whose use, appearance, or application has been reimagined and readapted.

But these ‘creatures’ are not just conceptual; they’re made to be lived with daily and all start with the idea that personal whim is probably the best guide for producing any design that’s to be lived with day in, day out.

Readers move back and forth between their own view of Chermayeff’s creatures and Dieter Roelstraete’s reflections on the nature of ‘things’, as he also draws on cultural figures like Heidegger, Francis Ponge, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Karl Ove Knausgård, and our relationship to the indomitable presence of objects in our lives.
