Dear reader

With great pleasure we present to you our new autumn 2014 titles, together with recent highlights from Frame’s book publishing activities. This is the first catalogue through which our new international distributor Thames and Hudson is presenting our title list. Perhaps Frame Publishers will be a new name for some people, so let me make the introductions. Frame Publishers is an independent publishing house led by Robert Thiemann and Rudolf van Wezel and is based in Amsterdam (few people actually know where we are located). The last 15 years has seen our publishing house building a successful portfolio of English language publications, truly international magazines and books in the creative sector (many people do know this, given our almost 200,000 friends and followers on all forms of social media). We are best known for our flagship magazine Frame, one of the largest international magazines worldwide devoted to the design of interiors and products. In our portfolio we also have Mark magazine, our award-winning architecture bible, as well as Elephant focusing its keen eye on art and visual culture. These form a fantastic base for our publishing activities, complemented by our full range of books. We cater to a wide creative audience of architects, (interior) designers and artists, making Frame Publishers a one-stop-shop for everyone interested in these creative pursuits. Now onto the order of business – this catalogue presents to you our line of recent books. Over the years, ‘nice to know’ books have made way for ‘need to know’ publications. Our main titles are monumental, vibrant and luxurious volumes with hundreds of exciting projects that reflect the best practices selected by the editors of Frame in different fields of design. Our books are manuals for inspiration; ‘how-to’ titles where each venue’s design is laid bare, with details of how the design teams fulfilled their

clients’ wishes and took the venues from concept to completion. Amongst the new autumn titles, we have Night Fever 4. This book unveils the latest and greatest hospitality interiors from all over the world, with 600 pages illustrating 130 hotspots to drink, eat and sleep. It is just one of the titles in our regular book series, in which every 2 years we select the best and the next in spatial and product design, also including Powershop (retail design), Grand Stand (stand design), Goods (product design) and Bright (lighting design). Then there is our Masterclass series, the ultimate guide to helping students and young professionals choose a school for further education, making it a socially important title. In each book, we profile and review the leading master’s degree courses worldwide in different disciplines. The newest one for this autumn is Masterclass: Interior Design. We published our first art-related book in 2013 and have already more than quadrupled that number in 2014, commissioned by world famous artists. How art reflects on society is the basis of our third new autumn title, Re:Society – a celebration of ING’s artwork collection. Finally, we deliver probably the most hands-on book ever published on model making for architects, spatial designers and students, simply called Model Making. It is written by teachers who saw a gap in the market for a really practical how-to book in this field, so they decided to write that book themselves. Word is already getting around about this book and we hope it will find its way to many teachers and students across the globe. Publishers, distributors and book stores find themselves in interesting times. We still believe in the power of paper. We believe in the power of attractive physical objects. We believe in the power of information. We therefore continue to publish excellent, sought-after books. I wish you all happy reading and to the comrades in the book business: happy selling! Rudolf van Wezel, Publisher

Presented over 600 pages are a variety of designs from subtle to stunning, monochromatic to vibrant and low-budget to exorbitant.

40 Years of ING Engaging with the Arts

Art is an essential part of ING’s corporate identity. The ING Collection was founded in 1974 to create a stimulating working environment. Over the years, the collection has grown to become an extensive and internationally renowned collection of artworks, with a focus on contemporary art by professional artists. In 2014, to celebrate 40 years of the Art Collection, this milestone is marked with an exhibition and the publication of this book. Re:Society shows a selection of the artworks that ING has collected over the past 40 years, and what ING has meant for and will mean for society in the future.

Model Making

Conceive, Create and Convince

This book is a step-by-step guide about how to create convincing architectural models. Borne out of the authors’ experience and enjoyment in the use of models in education and in professional practice, it is an essential manual for students of spatial disciplines, such as urban planning, garden and landscape architecture, public space or interior design, and anyone with an interest in model making. Many people see a model as a finished product, but it can be much more than that. Models can be used in the study/research phases of a project and are essential as design/communication tools until the final presentation model is ready to be finalised. In this manual, each of these applications is explained in detail. Readers discover the most appropriate type of model to match the look and mode of work. Furthermore, the practical side of model construction is explained and illustrated.

A vital, step-by-step guide to creating convincing architectural models

Authors Arjan Karssen and Bernard Otte Editor Frame Graphic Design Frame 208 pages 245Ă—210 mm Soft cover ISBN 978-9491727-27-6 English May 2014

The three types of models that run parallel to each other include the research, communication and presentation models, and these are illustrated with real-life scenarios from architecture and design offices around the world, which is a unique and vital aspect to this book. The manual can be seen as a roadmap for the manufacture of models, and a detailed reference book for outlining the latest materials and techniques.

New Window x Lex Pott Diptych features new work from designer Lex Pott. Eight new wooden products – which came about through a collaboration between the designer and New Window – are beautifully illustrated in this book. New Window is an online platform and design label that gives an insight into the making process of art and design products. The book captures the entire process of the collaboration, from the first moment of inspiration until the final outcome. For New Window, Pott drew inspiration from Dutch pine. While experimenting with this softwood, he discovered that the annual growth rings are separated from one another by a softer material. By sandblasting the timber and removing this material, he exposed the unique patterns that lie hidden in every tree. Only then did Pott begin to consider functionality. What can you make out of pieces of wood featuring whimsical, lattice-like patterns? Pott created eight products, among others a room divider, a set of combs and a cabinet. The series of products were given the name Diptych.



Ryan McGinness Everything is Everywhere

Everything Is Everywhere is Ryan McGinness’ latest art book featuring new paintings and sculptures from different bodies of work – Mindscapes, Blackholes and Women – as well as site-specific work made for the pages of this book. Reproductions of reproductions fold in on themselves as McGinness treats the metadata captions about the work with as much (or even more) importance as the reproduced works they describe. Adventurous typography is also employed with the incongruous phrases and texts culled from the artist’s sketchbooks. The stunning juxtapositions of all these elements create a textured and vividly explosive book that requires multiple visits. About Ryan McGinness is an American artist, living and working in New York. He grew up in the surf and skate culture of Virginia Beach and studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he interned at the Andy Warhol Museum. Known for his original extensive vocabulary of graphic drawings that use the visual language of public signage, corporate logos and contemporary iconography, McGinness creates paintings, sculptures, installations and books. Concerned with the perceived value of forms, McGinness is interested in assuming the power of this visual language in order to share personal expressions. Recent

Marcel Wanders The Designer Pinned Up

This book is a critical survey of Dutch designer Marcel Wanders covering 25 years of his work, from his early career to upcoming projects. It provides a framework for different aspects of Wanders’ designs.

Further essays and contributions richly illustrate and document over 50 outstanding design projects. In addition, an illustrated inventory of 500 projects, and a concise biography will round off the publication. The book’s release coincided with a major exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, as the largest-ever survey of one of the Netherlands’ most distinguished designers. About Marcel Wanders is a figurehead of Dutch design that put three-dimensional design from the Netherlands on the international map in the 1990s. An innovative approach to materials and technology, as well as the blending of handcraft and industrial technology, characterises Wanders’ work which also includes his successful label Moooi and his flamboyant designs for hotel interiors, as well as objects. 16

Marjolijn Mandersloot Whodunit

With the sculptures of Dutch artist Marjolijn Mandersloot, we find ourselves in pleasant company. Recognisable human and animal shapes are an important source of inspiration in Mandersloot’s work, mainly serving as a metaphor. Rabbits, donkeys, dogs and bears are formed in a humorous response to the malleable world of this moment. Every sculpture seems to possess a fabulous acting talent – body poses and material expression are used to create unique characters which often elicit poignant emotions in onlookers. The omission of detail, expanding proportions or the focus on specific parts of the sculpture leads to a pleasant confusion and often even a smile. Ambiguity suppresses narrative recognition and invites a new interpretation, with the sculptures’ surprising tactility seducing viewers to explore the borders between imagination and reality. This new book of Mandersloot’s work presents her latest projects, including her recent collaborations with the luxury fashion house Hermès of Paris. About Marjolijn Mandersloot’s prevailing ideal of physical beauty inspires a constant examination of a world of cute creatures. By means of ambiguous material choices, she encourages us to think about our own identity through installations that have soft touches mingled with robust bronze or polished aluminium. 18


New Tribal Labyrinth Atelier Van Lieshout

New Tribal Labyrinth offers a survey of works from the epony­ mous on-going project by Atelier Van Lieshout – the internatio­ nally recognised studio of Dutch artist Joep van Lieshout. This publication reflects on our extremely advanced and complex society, in which over-consumption and limited raw materials play a crucial role. In Atelier Van Lieshout’s vision, this will lead to conflict and the subsequent emergence of a new world order, with groups of people organising themselves in tribes instead of nation-states. This new tribal world will see a return to farming and industry and a re-establishment of our relationship with materials which now has been lost. About Joep van Lieshout lives and works in Rotterdam. Since the early 1980s, he has produce objects primarily in brightly coloured polyester, the material that would become his trademark in subsequent years. In 1995, he founded Atelier Van Lieshout, undermining the myth of the individual artistic genius and over the years gaining international recognition for objects that balance on the boundary between art, architecture and design. These works of art are practical, uncomplicated and substantial. Recurring themes in the work of AVL are autarky, power, politics and the more classical themes of life and death. Recent

More than 50 fetishes are illustrated by inspiring visuals from the likes of Leigh Bowery and Erwin Olaf, boundarystretching works from designers such as Formafantasma and Alexander McQueen, and eye-opening essays by Susan Piët and Valerie Steele, amongst others.

Another Approach to Ecology

Beautifully illustrated, Industry of Nature describes 75 strategies that nature has developed in response to needs such as protection, strength, aerodynamics, camouflage and more. Nature has always been a source of inspiration and resources to mankind, with countless sustainable solutions to issues that also man faces daily. Some of these solutions have already been applied to designs which are therefore also featured in the book. For example, light honeycomb materials that take inspiration from the cellular structure built by bees, or supramolecular materials with properties of self-healing that are inspired by human skin. Interviews with architects, designers and scientists highlight the ecology issues from various angles. Other features are a chapter on the history of biomimicry, a graphical timeline showing the Earth’s developments, a bibliography andan extensive glossary.

Where They Create


By Paul Barbera Photography Paul Barbera Author Alexandra Onderwater Graphic Design Frame

Paul Barbera is a documentary photographer on a mission: to visit and capture the essence of the studios of people whose work he loves and whose spaces he likes. Featured are 32 studios of media companies like the magazine Wallpaper* and fashion houses such as Acne, as well as artists, architects, illustrators and designers from all over the world. The images are as he finds the spaces, just the way they are, unstyled and raw. Barbera’s signature style is a mix of a bird’s-eye view with an exquisite eye for detail – personal narratives hidden in the nameplate at the doorbell, the way the papers are stacked on a desk or the paraphernalia we human beings tend to nest with. Alongside the photos are interviews with these creators revealing how their daily environment influences their output.

The majority of world cities are situated on the water and have too little space where it’s most needed: in the city centre. Building on water allows inner-city areas to expand. Floating buildings have many advantages. They are both flexible and mobile. A buoyant structure can be moved to make space for a new building, decreasing the need for the demolition of development that still has a productive economic future. Floating buildings outwit changing water levels by rising and falling with the tide and, in doing so, promote a more responsible water management. They leave no scars on their sites, permitting planners to actively meet the demands of the moment. It’s up to the architects of the climate-change generation to respond to the world’s spatial needs with smart, sustainable proposals. Float! will help them do just that.

Designers play an essential role in lending shape to brand identity through the creation of captivating presentations. Grand Stand 2 contains nearly 200 scores of strikingly successful results discovered worldwide. The stands are categorised according to theme – interior and architectural products, automotive, electronics, services, food, fashion and beauty, and retail – and are divided over two volumes: small-scale stands (below 500 m²) with examples of unusually atmospheric design solutions that transcend spatial limitations; and largescale stands (above 500 m²) featuring amazing temporary structures crafted to highlight the products and services of major international brands. Projects are accompanied by stunning images, in-depth descriptions, company profiles, and blocks of information that include names, locations, materials and other relevant details.

Oceans, seas, vast lakes and rivers are seemingly endless spaces that convey a sense of timelessness and generate universal feelings of freedom and adventure. The unique atmosphere of the seaside has been captured by designers, architects and artists worldwide. Compiled in this book are 115 creative concepts, from beach clubs, hotels and oceanfront homes to sea baths, urban beaches and art installations. Page after page, Beachlife offers examples of design, architecture and art that enhance the recreational and residential functions of waterfront sites across the globe. It touches on the subject of rising water levels and shows how architects, artists and designers are responding to climate change.

Architectural Illumination and Light Installations Bright details and explores 38 exterior lighting designs from top-level designers, manufacturers and artists around the world. Each project is shown on eight pages through photography, plans, lighting schemes and an explanatory text. Besides showing the glitter and glamour of a variety of cutting-edge ‘illuminating’ architecture, Bright attempts to capture the feeling of elevations which light and projections can bring to a building, a bridge or even a whole city. The book shows how lighting design invites passers-by to interact with architecture; how it triggers discussions, sets a mood or translates the values and data of a brand into sensitive and meaningful design. A separate chapter is dedicated to sharing basic knowledge on lighting design.

The Shape of Things to Come Authors Hanneke Kamphuis, Miegiel Loeffen and Hedwig van Onna Graphic Design Roosje Klap

Interiors for Human Wellness The atmosphere is a useful and meaningful metaphor for the artistic climate that fills our lives and responds to our senses. Within this publication, seven atmospheric layers that not only exist simultaneously but – owing to their fleeting nature – merge to form new combinations, over and over again, are explored to provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Generating an atmosphere all of its own, each page of this beautifully crafted book is lavishly illustrated with the recent work of top designers, architects and artists. From handicrafts to biometrics, colour, form and eclectic assemblages, Atmosphere presents varied methods – from dealing with the chill perfection of computer-aided design to counter-balancing a period of baroque extravagance – and, as such, it is a forecast of things to come.

A showcase of 32 projects each accompanied with photos, floor plans, project credits and a detailed essay, the book provides an in-depth insight into a sector of design that is evolving post-haste. Proof that the design of spaces for relaxation and fitness do not necessarily denote white walls and pan pipes, Relax presents designers that have gone beyond the ordinary to offer customers environments that are as innovative and therapeutic as the treatments on offer.

Happening presents 29 happenings – in the broadest sense of the word. From car shows to fashion events, from exhibitions to festivals, from sparkling to robust. Instead of telling you how to organize an event, Happening focuses on the design, and shows you how the designers translated the brief into an experience. The extensive photography allows you to enjoy these innovative events to the fullest. With today’s communication overload, marketeers have to come up with new ways to get and keep people’s attention. In Happening designers explain how they translated the essence of a brand into an event, creating an experience that fascinates a global audience.

Fuelled by the success of Powershop: New Japanese Retail Design, this book is devoted to the design of exclusive clothing shops and boutiques. Dress Code presents a selection of 50 innovative and exciting retail interiors from the fashionable cities across the globe, from renowned hotbeds of design like Paris, Milan and New York to rising stars such as Tokyo and Antwerp.

In a remarkable review of the first 50 issues of Frame, The Back Issue highlights the best article in each of the magazines. The pieces appear in chronological order, but an easy-reference index allows the reader to look them up by category as well. Designers comments on the publication of their work, the impact that publication has had on their lives, and news about their latest activities are included as well. Interspersed with these fifty features are interviews with Frame’s graphic designers and with the founders of Frame Publishers, a brief history of the magazine, and a sampling of reactions from readers.

Authors Remi Abbas, Kanae Hasegawa, David Littlefield, Sarah Martín Pearson, Shonquis Moreno, Chris Scott and Charlotte Vaudrey Graphic Design Thomas Buxó

A pane of glass, not more than 1.5-cm thick, divides the shop from the pavement. On one side, the climate-controlled interior welcomes those who can buy; on the other; the intemperate street is where those who cannot buy may look without paying. The editors of Frame magazine invited ten couturiers and shops to participate in Forefront, an overview of the shop window culture. Featured are more than 200 bold and lyrical window displays by the likes of Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Harvey Nichols, Hermès Japan, Moschino, Selfridges and Louis Vuitton. Also included are interviews with the designers.
