Description

The definitive monograph on one of Europe’s most influential creative partnerships, M/M (Paris, to mark their 20th anniversary

Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak formed their studio, M/M (Paris), in 1992. Since then, it has become one of this generation’s most distinctive and influential voices in graphic design.

Originally working for small independent music labels, M/M soon caught the attention of the fashion world, and later developed long-term collaborations with a rich array of iconic artists, art directors and musical artists Рmost notably, Björk and Madonna. They have also produced unexpected three-dimensional designs for the stage, restaurants and perfume.

Designed by London’s Graphic Thought Facility, this alphabetically organized book ‘starts’ in the middle with the letter ‘M’, presenting projects and interviews with the designers and key collaborators, including Pierre Huyghe, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Philippe Parreno and Nicolas Bourriaud. Presenting the complete range of M/M’s work for the very first time, it offers rich insight into how they have created one of the most original and unified visual languages of our times.
