abstract
"Nightclubs and discothèques are hotbeds of contemporary culture. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, they have been centres of the avant-garde that question social norms and experiment with different realities, merging interior and furniture design, graphics and art with sound, light, fashion, and special effects to create a modern Gesamtkunstwerk. 'Night Fever : designing club culture 1960-today' is the first book to offer a comprehensive overview of the design history of the nightclub, examining its cultural context and international scope. Examples range from the Italian clubs of the 1960s created by the protagonists of Radical Design to the legendary Studio 54 where Andy Warhol was a regular and the Palladium in New York, designed by Arata Isozaki, as well as more recent concepts by architecture studio OMA for the Ministry of Sound II in London. Featuring films and vintage photographs, posters, flyers, and fashion, 'Night Fever' takes the reader on a fascinating journey through a world of glamour, subculture, and the search for the night that never ends"--Back cover.
