Pre Design 1969: Research on Plastic Laminate by the Exhibition Design Group
Fifty years after the first exhibition by the Exhibition Design group, Michele Galluzzo recounts the first experiments of the collective in Pre design 1969. Research on plastic laminate by the Exhibition Design group. Made up of leading Italian graphic designers such as Giulio Confalonieri, Silvio Coppola, Franco Grignani, Bruno Munari and Pino Tovaglia, the ED group was formed in the late 1960s in Milan and in less than a decade gave rise to an extremely interesting experience, which until now has only been partially investigated.
Highlighting the peculiarities of the group's approach, Galluzzo's essay focuses on overcoming the concept of individual authorship, the choice of exhibition space as a tool for dialogue with the community, reflection on design methodology and research in an interdisciplinary perspective.
