In 1979 the radical Alchimia group, founded by Alessandro Mendini in 1976, opened ‘Alchimia-Memorie e Luoghi del XX Secolo’, the first gallery in Europe dedicated to avant garde design. The gallery organised exhibitions, installations and performances which included furniture and objects by designers in the group: Alessandro Mendini, Andrea Branzi, Lapo Binazzi, Trix and Robert Haussmann, Anna Gili, Ettore Sottsass and others. In the spring of 1981, the gallery held an exhibition in which designers were invited to submit works around the theme of the egg. The present lot, a unique work, was from this exhibition. Sottsass would go on to found the eponymous Memphis group the same year.

Sotheby's would like to thank Pier Carlo Bontempi for his assistance with the cataloguing of this work.
