Each volume of Typologie is devoted to one object and explores its secrets by documenting its manufacture, detailing its history, and highlighting its enduring relevance.
The first issue in the Typologie series is a study of the history and production of a cultural sporting icon: La Boule de Pétanque.
The second issue is dedicated to the cork stopper and the third to the wine bottle.
'Typologie' is a collection of design books about ordinary objects. This issue dedicated to the cork stopper features: a large photographic section; a trip to the cork oak forests and factories in Portugal; industrial archives and corky stories; a sensitive encounter between a manufacturer, a famous consultant, and a Catalan designer.
