Provokationen. (Superstudio & Paola Navone covers)
Design Aus Italien

Beautiful over-sized book published on the occasion of a special exhibition in Lower Saxony and Bremen in 1982 entitled “Provokationen. Design Aus Italien : Ein Mythos Geht Neue Wege”.

Published more broadly as a softcover book in 1982, here is one of the very limited edition hardcover versions, produced in collaboration between the designers Andrea Branzi, Paola Navone, Mario Radice, Ettore Sottsass Jr. and Superstudio with Firma Abet Laminati in Turin, especially for the exhibition. Each of the limited hardcover copies is sandwiched between two pieces of actual laminate panels designed by the designers and produced by Abet Laminati.

This particular copy features the work of Superstudio (front cover laminate) and Paola Navone (back cover laminate).

A very collectable copy of an incredible, scarce, heavy Italian design book!
