"Stylistically, Salvagni is an avowed modernist; his work displays an elegant economy of means that is utterly contemporary," writes Pilar Viladas. "Yes, his work consistently bears the weight of history - not in overt references, but in its material richness, impeccable craftsmanship, and deeply layered narrative."

In the seventeen years since Achille Salvagni founded his design practice in Rome, the architect and designer has become known for his luxurious interiors, including apartments in New York and Palm Beach, a flat overlooking Holland Park in London, and his own apartment in Rome. He has become one of the world's preeminent designers of interiors, for which he has won numerous awards. His limited-edition furniture, lighting, and object designs are sought after both by collectors and by his fellow designers for their own projects.

This is the first monograph on Salvagni, with his best projects organised thematically instead of chronologically. With chapters on Craftsmanship, Heritage, Narrative, Harmony, and Colour - among other themes - this monograph will enlighten as well as delight.

Italian designer and architect Achille Salvagni is internationally known for his projects from New York to Rome to Palm Beach, as well as for his limited-edition furniture and lighting collections. He formed his company, Salvagni Architetti, in 2002, and since then has combined luxurious materials and traditional techniques with his innovative creativity. This monograph by Pilar Viladas looks at unifying themes like harmony, color and craftsmanship that are behind the work of this leading voice in contemporary design. --JEZEBEL.COM

Written by Pilar Viladas, former design editor of The New York Times Style Magazine, with a foreword by dealer-collector Benoist Drut of Maison Gerard that spotlights Salvagni's limited-edition furniture, lighting, and object designs, this book delivers style and substance in equal parts. --ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST.COM

In this sumptuous tome from Rizzoli, the work of Italian designer Achille Salvagni draws from tradition but remains wholly modern--in his words, "If you want to look at the future, you need to know the past." An architect by trade, Salvagni insists on designing his projects inside and out, challenging Italian master craftsman to apply age-old techniques in stonecutting, woodwork and bronze to his own visionary designs. The result? Rich interiors with an uncompromising sense of drama. --BUSINESSOFHOME.COM
