All pieces selected for ‘Revolutionary Icons’ are innovative in terms of concept, imagery, use of materials and production process. By their novelty, these products are set to become icons of design and contemporary production, over time

Bringing a piece of contemporary design history into one’s home is always a great investment: today to live with it, tomorrow to pass it down
