If you’ve visited the V&A’s Cold War Modern exhibition, you might have seen a strange film by a radical Italian architecture/design collective – Superstudio. The group left plenty of bold statements and ideas behind in the 60s and 70s, but very actual design – with the exception of the Quaderna range for Zanotta.
And this Superstudio Quaderna 710 console table and bench is part of it. The idea was to create a ‘neutral surface’, free of influence from all that has come before, which you certainly get here. Both pieces feature a honey-comb core structure coated with white plastic laminate, that check design screenprinted onto that surface.
Hard to describe it as eye-catching, but as design with a story, this is hard to beat. Yours from £1,620.
