R & Company presents SuperDesign, a survey of Italian Radical Design from 1965-1975, curated by freelance journalist and independent design curator Maria Cristina Didero. The exhibition has been over a decade in the making and has come together through extensive research, passionate collecting and frequent trips to Italy to interview protagonists of the movement. The comprehensive survey highlights these leading gures and showcases a capsule collection of visionary works, alongside a selection of rare archival drawings and photography. The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive book published by The Monacelli Press, written by Didero, with an introduction by R & Company principal Evan Snyderman and contributions from Deyan Sudjic and Catharine Rossi, as well as a feature length (62 minute) documentary directed by Francesca Molteni which presents interviews with pioneering designers and rare never- before-seen archival footage.
