Radical. Visionary. Poetic. Inside Utopia shows the future of living that architects and designers have envisioned. Spectacular and reflective, unpretentious and efficient: the breathtaking Elrod House by John Lautner; the Lagerfeld Apartment near Cannes that seems like a set from a science fiction film; Palais Bulles in France with its organic and unique architecture. These interiors welcome habitation and spark curiosity while embodying the foundations of minimalism and bygone visions of the future. Inside Utopia delves into the rhyme and reason behind past designs that we still interact with today. The architects, the owners, and the craftsmen like Gio Ponti or Bruce Goff who work behind the scenes created amorphous interiors that invite the mind to wander. At the time they were futuristic, confident, utopian, idealistic— we may not realize it, but they have shaped our current living concepts, and even now, they inspire us anew. Previously it has been difficult to attain access to these preserved interiors, but Inside Utopia unearths what was before unseen.

Praise For…

"[Inside Utopia] is loaded with examples of visionary design, Brutalist architecture and Space Age futurism — the only inspiration you need for your next apartment revamp."

-Gear Patrol

"Inside Utopia attempts to unpack what we consider Modernism, with case studies spanning three decades and thirteen countries. Gestalten, a Berlin-based publishing house known for their exquisitely curated books on art and design, both articulates and connects seemingly disparate design trends across time and geography."
