The “Talisman – Contemporary Symbolic Objects” book gathers a highly evocative series of talismans and symbolic artefacts with extraordinary evocative power. Barbara Brondi & Marco Rainò asked 46 young but already established designers on the international scene to design new, innovative talismans on purpose: they are symbols, vehicles of meaning, objects that embody individual and collective values. The volume “Talisman” thus illustrates a series of empathetic objects made of different materials and original shapes.
The book “Talisman – Contemporary Symbolic Objects”, through many pictures and an important critical apparatus, presents the contents of the group exhibition of the same name produced by IN Residence and hosted at Palazzo Clerici during the Milan Design Week 2017.
