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.
With photography by internationally renowned architectural photographer Helene Binet, it will be a welcome addition to any architecture lover or design enthusiast’s shelf.
In recent years Van Duysen has secured his reputation as one of the major tastemakers of minimalist design. The projects featured in this new book include an array of elegant residences in New York, Paris, and The Hamptons, and other private and public buildings, such as the Alexander Wang storefront in London.
Vincent Van Duysen
Van Duysen’s forays into product and interior design are also featured, including yacht interiors and furniture and homeware design for brands including the esteemed Italian house Molteni & C.With foreword by the actor, and close friend of Van Duysen, Julianne Moore, this new collection of works also includes an insightful preface by the architect Nicola di Battista.
From the onset, a definite relationship between architecture, interior and product design has been a driving force, creating projects with subtle transitions between these disciplines, combined with a spatial design attitude that always searches the essence.
