Superstudio
Life Without Objects

As new, fine condition copy of the most definitive monograph published on the work of Superstudio! This title quickly became a collector’s item very shortly after it was printed in 2003.

Founded in Florence in 1966, Superstudio challenged the modernist orthodoxy that architecture and technological advances could improve the world by creating alternative visions of the future in photo-montages, sketches, collages and films. The five members of Superstudio: Cristiano Toraldo di Francia, Gian Piero Frassinelli, Alessandro Magris, Roberto Magris and Adolfo Natalini-were equally pessimistic about politics and its ability to solve mounting social, cultural and environmental problems.

Superstudio: Life without Objects collects nearly 200 of the group’s most important images, collages, storyboards and critical writings. White monuments crossing over entire landscapes and cities, vast grid groundplanes spreading over infinite beaches populated by wandering hippies: these are some of the more evocative images that consolidated their fame as vanguard architects. In 1972, MoMA invited them to participate in one of the largest exhibitions in its history, built around Italian design and architecture. With essays from Peter Lang and William Menking, the book is designed to provide the reader with the most detailed account of this avant-garde design group and their lively assault on modernism.

Cartier design viewed by Ettore Sottsass


Richly illustrated, this catalogue accompanies an international jewelry exhibition. Ettore Sottsass presents the Collection Art de Cartier in a brilliant new manner, viewing the collection as a reflection of form and design, while understanding its function and relation with the surrounding space and the bodies it adorns. For this impressive project Ettore Sottsass has selected over 200 jewels, watches and accessories following his personal and intuitive taste forgoing epochs and fashion trends, and creates and highlights the ties amongst the materials, style and colour. To emphasize his vision, for each piece Sottsass creates a decorative element meant to contain the object as a shrine located in a cosmic space.
