Studio 65

The incredible, rarely seen Electa Studio 65 monograph!

In 1965 Studio 65 was founded by Franco Audrito and Piero Gatti, architecture and art students in Turin, at a time in Italy covering the 1960s and 1970s, where radical design groups were establishing an opposition to the pure functionalism of the International Style of design. Their ironic adaptation of classical elements predates the historicist designs of such 1980s postmodernists as Robert Venturi and Michael Graves in America and Hans Hollein, Ricardo Bofill, and Aldo Rossi in Europe, and it also takes note of pop art developments of the period in ways which in turn influenced visual artists of the time.
This valuable book encompasses their entire history of work, all densely illustrated in colour and black and white throughout with texts in both Italian and English discussing each project. Includes all their work across furniture design (including their iconic polyurethane foam pieces for Gufram, such as “Bocca” and “Capitello”), interior design, architecture, exhibition design, and much more. From designing discotheques to children’s playgrounds, much of the content in this book is undocumented elsewhere in print.
Alongside a complete biographical history, interviews and essays, this great book visually captures Studio 65’s place at the forefront of Italy’s radical anti-design movement, transforming furniture, jewellery, accessories, and even architecture itself into objects of fantasy.

First and only edition.

Ettore Sottsass Jr. 60′- 70′

Gorgeous, out of print, huge book on the early work of Italian designer Ettore Sottsass.  Drawing in part on the FRAC Centre collection, this book gathers together unique works and projects of Ettore Sottsass – drawings, furniture, objects, ceramics, jewellery, photographs, written works and architecture – wherein over a period of time Sottsass frees himself from the principles of functionalism and rationalism and moves towards the development of a new sensorial language. This heavy book lavishly illustrates the large body of experimental and commercial work Sottsass had produced that lead the way to his founding the Memphis Group in Italy, 1981.

Overflowing with beautifully reproduced full-page colour images and containing minimal French text, this deluxe cloth-bound publication allows for an fascinating insight into one of the most important designers of the 20th century.
