Arranging Things by Leonard Koren

$60.00

Just as his classic bestseller Wabi-Sabi explored the quintessential Japanese aesthetic, Arranging Things uncovers the underlying principles that govern how Western designers arrange things in three-dimensional compositions. Inspired by Greek and Roman notions of rhetoric—the ancient art of argument and delivery—Koren elucidates the elements of arranging rhetoric that all designers instinctively use in everything from floral compositions to interior decorating. Not a how-to but a manifesto of theory and insight, this book will change the way you see, and arrange, your world. Illustrated throughout by Nathalie Du Plasquier, of the Memphis design movement.

This new 2024 edition of Arranging Things presents Du Pasquier’s artistic works in a generous format in celebration of Koren’s visual journey through the heart of design philosophy.

We are lifelong bibliophiles. Shelves filled with books line our studio walls and more are stacked on every surface. We admire their design, scrutinize their typography, fetishize their paper and analyze their binding. We read them for research, for inspiration, for the sheer pleasure of exploring new worlds of thought and experience.

We have curated a selection of books to offer our audience, based on our interests and yours. Most of our books are limited editions or out of print, they are seldom available in the US, and not available on Amazon. 

The fact that we have now launched our own imprint seems an inevitable extension. Wms&Co. books are created in collaboration with the interesting characters, visionaries and designers we encounter. Subject matter varies wildly but is always infused with the spirit of creativity and a respect for good design.

All books are final sale: non-refundable and non-exchangable. 

 

We would be great together -
