This substantial catalogue provides a detailed review of the careers of two influential postwar Italian artists, documenting some 75 innovative lamps, chairs, modular living units and other objects designed by Joe Colombo while also illustrating nearly 100 works by his brother Gianni, a member of the Milan-based Gruppo T whose experimental abstract oeuvre encompasses kinetic sculptures, installations of monumental geometric forms, and environments in which spaces are defined by projected light and configurations of elastic filaments. Selections from the writings of the two brothers augment more than 20 texts that include interviews with the artists, critical evaluations of their work, reminiscences by their associates, and discussions of the vibrant cultural atmosphere of Milan during the 1960s.
