PIN-UP Interviews is a compilation of over 50 of the most fascinating interviews from PIN-UP magazine since its first issue was published in October 2006. Serious, yet accessible, and featuring the elegant and modern aesthetic PIN-UP's readers have come to expect, 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.
PIN-UP Interviews is the first book produced by PIN-UP, the award-winning, New York-based biannual architecture and design magazine. Cheekily dubbing itself the "Magazine for Architectural Entertainment," PIN-UP features interviews with architects, designers, and artists, and presents their work informally-as a whimsical assembly of ideas, stories, and conversations, all paired with cutting-edge photography and artwork. Both raw and glossy, this "cult design zine" in the words of The New York Times, 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, and smart design, resulting in a veritable Venn diagram of where these spheres cross-pollinate.
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, Clemence Seilles, Hedi Slimane, and Bethan Laura Wood.
