Miniature Carlton Sottsass shelves available from the V&A


The exhibition doesn't open until 24 September but the V&A's product to accompany their Postmodernism show is already beginning to creep into their shop. Definitely worth a look are these miniature Carlton shelves, based on the design by Ettore Sottsass

Designed in 1981 by Sottsass for Memphis, the riot of colour, shapes and material have become forever associated with the period, and the movement. Hard to imagine in many places other than a gallery, they are bound to form a focal point in any room. Though they are described as miniature, it's hard to tell from the V&A's website just how big they are. Judging by the price, and the fact they are only deliverable in the UK, hopefully they're not too mini. 

Available to pre-order now, the shelves cost £750.
