Heatherlyn. 20. I love coffee, pizza, plants and cats. I do not judge for we are all brothers and sisters. Lets hold hands.

What happens when famed art collector and Deste Foundation founder Dakis Joannou joins forces with what is arguably the most offbeat and mind-boggling publication out there? In an attempt to document his unparalleled collection of Radical Design furniture, Joannou commissioned artist/provocateur Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari - the creative masterminds behind TOILETPAPER magazine - to create a book that proudly celebrates a period that marked a revolutionary shift in stylistic direction in Italian design.
Founded in the late 1960s by a progressive group of Italian designers, the Radical Design movement was firmly opposed to the ethics – and indeed the very notion of – ‘good design’ or taste. Stemming from a loathing of the sterile state that design had come to at the time due to the uninspiring prevailing trends of previous decades, groups like Archizoom and Superstudio challenged the perception of furniture design and the gravity applied to function as opposed to form, giving birth to remarkable objects of surprising proportions, playful shapes and bold colours.
