Matteo Thun: The Index Book provides an overview of Matteo Thun’s architecture and product design. From his earliest to his most recent works, arranged from A to Z. The Index Book is not exactly a classic monograph but rather a sort of x-ray. Drawing on emotionally charged images, it explores and analyzes the various levels and strata of his world. Understanding Matteo Thun through his oeuvre, “from the spoon to the city”: from coffee cups to restaurants, from mountain resorts to wristwatches, from saucepans to solitary villas. With a variety of expressive illustrations, such as plans, watercolor sketches, photographs, and drawings. Based on key issues, such as ecology and the environment, economy and aesthetics, energy saving and luxury. One of Matteo Thun’s leitmotifs is sustainability. And his works are always underpinned by a holistic approach.
