No parties, but a family gift. To celebrate its first 50 years of history, Poliform has created a signature photo album: Time, Light, Space (Rizzoli, 96 pages, 85 euros), by the famous Italian photographer Paolo Roversi. A book that narrates in images the history of the company founded in 1970 as the evolution of a crafts workshop, thanks to the intuition of the cousins from Brianza, Giovanni Anzani, Aldo Spinelli and Alberto Spinelli. A reality that has become a reference point for contemporary furniture on an international level, with 80 monobrand stores around the world, 750 dealers and a presence in 85 countries.
The title of the book, Time, Light, Space, speaks of the constituent parts of both photography and design, the pursuit of an absolute synthesis and a radical simplicity that are shared by the work of Paolo Roversi and that of Poliform, in its constant reinvention of domestic space. Not a catalogue but a powerful narrative through the universal language of photography, a voyage inside the Poliform universe that condenses years of innovation, challenges and encounters in the images of its products, along with timeless values like a passion for the work, respect for quality and devotion to excellence.
