About

Chrome and elastic "Mies" lounge chair with illuminated ottoman by Archizoom Associati for Poltronova, Italy, designed 1969



Founded in 1966 by Andrea Branzi (b 1939), Gilberto Corretti (b 1941), Paolo Deganello (b 1940) and Massimo Morozzi, Archizoom was an Italian Architectural & Design partnership.



Based in Florence, where they were subsequently joined by Dario Bartolini and Lucia Bartolini in 1968, they were initially influenced by the utopian visions of Archigram, the English architectural group. They soon achieved prominence following appearances at the Superarchitettura exhibitions of architecture at Pistoia in 1966 and Modena in 1967 which they organized with the Superstudio Group. They undertook many projects, always reflecting their search for a new, technology-based approach to urban design. The group eventually disbanded in 1974, but not before leaving a lasting legacy that was to influence a new generation of designers such as Memphis.
