Expanding on the underpinnings of the pop art movement of the 1950s and ’60s, designers are championing anti-elitism and bold and figurative graphics-reworking these ideals and their meaning within contemporary three-dimensional Gingko Press architectural spaces. Interior Pop! is a grand survey of how brands and enterprises are using space as their canvases to express identity with maximum impact. Within our highly globalized world, where many have access to new technologies, self-expression can be realized as never before. Makers of commercial interior spaces have quickly (and wisely) acknowledged the value of individuality and idiosyncrasy in a world where cookie-cutter duplicates are no longer interesting - and have enabled large-scale production of what were previously just abstract ideas in the minds of designers. Interior Pop! features spaces which maximize the communication role of interior design within a new visual system, attracting and sustaining our attention with free-style interiors that juxtapose visual art, sculptural installations, graphics, patterns, and spatiality.
