Written by the Moscow Design Museum’s Alexandra Sankova and Olga Druzhinina to relate the previously untold story of the VNIITE – the All-Union Scientific Research Institute of Technical Aesthetics.
Formed in Soviet Russia in 1962, by the design visionary Yuri Soloviev, this vast network contained Moscow’s most progressive designers. The ‘Vniitians’, as they were called, designed for the future and developed new theories and approaches to design in the USSR.
More than ﬁfty years later the organisation is largely forgotten but the story of VNIITE is being pieced back together. Alongside images of sketches, models and prototypes, this book also includes a selection of covers of one of the USSR’s hidden gems of graphic design – the VNIITE’s monthly journal, Technical Aesthetics. Showcased together for the first time, these covers chart Soviet graphic trends from the 1960s to the early 1990s.
