Satyendra Pakhalé

Culture of Creation 

Alberto Alessi et all.

ROTTERDAM | NAI010: 2019 

nai010 publishers Rotterdam, the Netherlands published the first comprehensive monograph devoted to international renowned designer Satyendra Pakhalé. The notion of a ‘Culture of Creation’ refers to the ancient and innate impulse behind human making. It engages with the very roots of the human need to create, to design, to make, to build and bring something into reality.

Satyendra Pakhalé Culture of Creation is not a traditional monograph. Through 12 critical essays by leading design thinkers on a wide range of topics the monograph aims to initiate a new debate about design and its plurality and diversity in the contemporary cultural context. It brings new facts and facets of design history to attention for the first time challenging preconceived notions such as the legendary Ulm Model, the Aristotelian five senses and the common understanding of traditions and cultural background from India. In doing so, the book sheds a new light on ‘sensorial design’ deeply rooted in contemporary living experience as well as ancient cultures.

Contributing Authors: 

Alberto Alessi, Juhani Pallasmaa, Paola Antonelli, Jacques Barsac, Giulio Cappellini, Aric Chen, Cristiano Crosetta, Ingeborg de Roode, Rene Spitz, Tiziana Proietti, Vittorio Livi and Stefano Marzano.
