Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
A revealing of the essence and character of Van Duysen's works
From Thailand to New York and from Belgium to Portugal, the selection of 21 projects includes both domestic and public spaces, as well as furniture, design objects, and even a yacht.
Images and technical details combine to reveal the mature essence and character through which Van Duysen celebrates form, proportion, and refinement in his array of works.
Essays by Marc Dubois, Manuel Aires Mateus, and José Manuel Pedreirinho add perspective on the architect’s projects and practice.
