The first monograph on Snarkitecture, a New York-based collaborative and innovative design studio with an introduction by Maria Cristina Didero.
Fast becoming one of the world’s most sought-after studios, Snarkitecture has designed installations, architecture, products, and furniture for a diverse range of clients. This book presents more than 70 of their projects and investigates how its founders, artist Daniel Arsham and architect Alex Mustonen, work at the interface between their disciplines to come up with some of the most beguiling and fascinating designs seen in recent years.
- The first monograph on one of the most creative, daring, and original design studios on the planet, a collaborative team that pushes the boundaries between art and architecture
- Clients include Design Miami, Design Within Reach, Kith, New Museum, Odin, Beats by Dr. Dre, Calvin Klein, Kartell, and COS
- Collaborators include modern dance choreographer Merce Cunningham, Christian Dior fashion designer Hedi Slimane, and gallerist Emmanuel Perrotin
