Bruno Munari: Square, Circle, Triangle

In the early 1960s Italian design legend Bruno Munari published his visual case studies on shapes:Circle,Square, and, a decade later,Triangle. Using examples from ancient Greece and Egypt, as well as works by Buckminster Fuller, Le Corbusier, and Alvar Aalto, Munari invests the three shapes with specific qualities: the circle relates to the divine, the square signifies safety and enclosure, and the triangle provides a key connective form for designers.

One of the great designers of the twentieth century, Munari contributed to the fields of painting, sculpture, design, and photography while teaching throughout his seventy-year career. After World War II he began to focus on book design, creating children’s books known for their simplicity and playfulness.

A Penguin Classic

Bruno Munari was among the most inspirational designers of all time, described by Picasso as \”the new Leonardo.\” Munari insisted that design be beautiful, functional and accessible, and this enlightening and highly entertaining book sets out his ideas about visual, graphic and industrial design and the role it plays in the objects we use everyday. Lamps, road signs, typography, posters, children’s books, advertising, cars and chairs–these are just some of the subjects to which he turns his illuminating gaze.
