SuperDesign charts the Italian Radicals’ bold experimentation in modern design from its birth in the mid-1960s through its continued influence on design today. What started as a youthful rally against the establishment and a rejection of design norms became a movement that brought together some of the most dynamic and avant-garde thinkers and makers across the country.
The book includes iconic works, experimental furniture, archival drawings, rarely seen photographs from that era, and series of essays by Maria Cristina Didero, Evan Snyderman, Catharine Rossi, and Deyan Sudjic.
Design fans will no doubt delight in reading more about legendary designers that include Piero Gilardi, Ugo La Pietra, Studio 65, Superstudio, Archizoom Associati, Pietro Derossi (Gruppo Strum), Gianni Pettena, Lapo Binazzi (UFO), and Gaetano Pesce.
