In order to celebrate a tremendous shift in stylistic direction in Italian Design, TOILETPAPER Magazine envited artist/provacateur Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari to create a book that celebrates this amazing artistic period of Italian Design.
Founded in the late 1960s by a subversive group of Italian designers, the Radical Design movement was firmly opposed to the ethics – and indeed the very notion of – ‘good design’ or taste. Challenging the perception of furniture design and the gravity applied to function as opposed to form, the result was the creation of remarkable objects of surprising proportions, playful shapes and bold colours.
“1968: Radical Italian Furniture” is then the result of this italian design celebration. Take a look at some of this artists outstanding creations, and let yourself surpass your own visual limits and paradigmas.
