About

Ettore Sottsass (1917-2017)

Designed in: 1968.

Superbox, by Poltronova with blue and white laminate. Designed by Sottsass for Poltronova,

the Superboxes bear some relationship

to furniture designed by Koloman Moser. However, Sottsass moved away from strict

functionalism to incorporate ideas from

art, religion, and contemporary fashion. He

intended for the cabinets to stand away from

the wall, giving them a separate presence, as

if they were ritualistic altars for daily life. The Superboxes are clad on all sides with patterned and coloured laminate, reflecting the influence of both Pop art and Minimalism, a prelude to

Memphis.

Please note that the Superbox is executed around 2003.

174x74x74 cm.

€22,000 - €24,000
