Bruno Munari (1907-98) was an impassioned collector of the visible, of differences in appearances. With single-minded purpose, he explored the relationship between simple objects and our sensual transformation of them. Born in Milan, Munari was a prominent figure in Italy and Europe for decades as an artist, graphic designer, author of children's books, and publicist. Children were his mentors; he was fascinated with the forces that enable us to transform the natural impulses of the child into effective design. This comprehensive presentation of Bruno Munari's oeuvre will delight art directors, graphic artists, product designers, architects, and all lovers of playful design
