Publisher's description: This long-awaited first title in a new series from design historian Alex Coles takes on the giants of the Italian avant-garde. The EP -- Extended Play -- series will fluidly move between art, design and architecture, and create a space between the popular magazine ("single play") and academic journals ("long play"). Catharine Rossi guest edits EP Vol. 1, exploring the interactions between alternative collectives including Arte Povera, Archizoom and Superstudio and iconic designers Ettore Sottsass and Alessandro Mendini. Also highlighted are overlooked spaces, works and performances generated by Zoo, Gruppo 9999 and Cavart. Design by Experimental Jetset. With contributions and interviews by Paola Antonelli, Andrea Branzi, Alison J. Clarke, Martino Gamper, Joseph Grima, Alessandro Mendini, Antonio Negri, Michaelangelo Pistoletto, Studio Formafantasma and Ettore Vitale, among others.
