Design movement you most identify with: “I’m not sure if I identify with it, but I really appreciate 1970s Italy, oh my oh my! Enzo Mari, Superstudio, Ettore Sottsass, Memphis Collective, Ugo La Pietra, Archizoom, Group 9999, the Separate School for Expanded Conceptual Architecture, Gaetano Pesce, Tobia and Afra Scarpa, etc. And many more I’m not mentioning. It was a unique moment in the history of design, to say the least. What were they drinking?? I admire the experimental approach. It seems as if everything was possible — socially, politically, artistically. Just a complete submission to the creative force and such wide­ranging curiosity.”
