1968 Italian Radical Design Book

1968 Italian Radical Design Book

1968 is the newest project from Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari’s TOILETPAPER in collaboration with the DESTE Foundation.

It offers an unorthodox, kaleidoscopic walk through the Dakis Joannou Collection of Italian Radical Design furniture. Led by avant-garde design firms such as Archizoom, Superstudio, Global Tools and 9999, Radical Design was firmly opposed to the ethics, and indeed the very notion of, “good design” or taste.

Published as a board book, and named after a year that was pivotal for architecture and design , "1968" is a collection of dreams and nightmares, an inspiring, eye-popping compendium of colorful, ironic objects and bodies. At once charmingly retro and alarmingly surreal.
