„Identity Architects“. To mark our studio’s 15-year anniversary we have made ourselves a present: our first monograph is hot off the press at FRAME Publishers Amsterdam. It contains 12 essays by Munich-based author and journalist Oliver Herwig that examine key themes that influence our work, our thought processes and our design approach. An in-depth interview with Peter Ippolito and Gunter Fleitz provides interesting insights into the philosophy behind all our design. And Ben Nicholson, mentor and friend to Peter, sums up the essence of our work from the other side of the pond. Our most important projects of recent years appear across 378 pages in more than 700 images: from a palace in Tashkent to a tiny jewellery shop nestling in a former elevator shaft of a Moscow mall. Each page has been designed individually, as we approached this book with the same love for detail that we devote to all our projects.
The book is available now at the FRAME online shop, at all good bookshops and online stores (ISBN 978-94-92311-00-9).
The monograph with its editorial structure, layout, graphic design and special print finishings reflects the approach like every project at IFG is treated at to the same level of energy, effort and devotion to detail.
