Surrealism expanded our reality by resorting to myths, dreams and the subconscious as sources of artistic inspiration.

Beginning in the 1930s, the movement had a crucial impact on design, and it continues to inspire designers to this day. »Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design« is the first book to document this fascinating conversation. It includes numerous essays and a wide selection of images that trace these reciprocal exchanges by juxtaposing exemplary works of art and objects of design. Noted artists and designers include Gae Aulenti, Achille Castiglioni, Giorgio de Chirico, Le Corbusier, Salvador Dalí, Marcel Duchamp, Antoni Gaudí, Frederick Kiesler, René Magritte, Carlo Mollino, Meret Oppenheim and many others. The book is completed with historical text material, as well as short texts and statements from contemporary designers. This in-depth examination makes one thing very clear: form does not always follow function, but can also follow our obsessions, our fantasies, and our hidden desires.
