1977 Ettore Sottsass creates Valigia for Stilnovo.
For a birthday party … it comes from this kind of idea that Ettore Sottsass created Valigia, with irony and a specific use of colour that distinguishes the main works of this architect who has always made us dream, through his works, without ever ignoring the need to be simple and functional. A perfect object for Stilnovo at the time that preferred to use a simple bent plate instead of a mold, which would have required a large investment.
A piece that fits into the Stilnovo collection perfectly, inspired by the idea of a simple bent plate, with details in painted metal. This is Valigia, an icon in the vast repertory of design by Ettore Sottsass.Even though its production created no real problems, the lack of the original drawings required a certain amount of commitment in order to rebuild the executive designs, but thanks to the help of Barbara Radice Sottsass, the colours were individuated and the trim remains as true to the original as possible.
