Terrazzo. Architecture and Design. Number 2, Spring 1989
Milan: Terrazzo srl, 1989. 1st Edition. Tall folio, publisher's color printed stiff paper wraps.
Lavish bi-annual architecture and design publication, edited and published by Italian journalist Radice, founding member - with her husband, designer Ettore Sottsass - of the Memphis Group. This issue showcases work by Sottsass, Andrea Branzi and Frank Gehry, with a suite of drawings by Francesco Clemente, a photoseries on designer glass by Robert Mapplethorpe, and a conversation with writer Fran Lebowitz on architects: "architects usually have good looking wives and girlfriends, the same as painters. After all a girl who's around all the time is as much a part of the environment as a sofa although a sofa tends to be both less opinionated and easier to move." Illustrated throughout with color photos, drawings, plans and reproductions. Unopened in original plastic wrap. Item #6531
