Notes from the archive: Andrea Branzi has collaborated with Nicoletta Branzi to produce this stunning collection of “mysterious” creature objects that have been designed to be worn, lived in/with and used for decoration between 1985 and 1986. This is a collection of “metaphors” of the relationships of animals in and about the human home. They have taken natural materials and fabrics and reworked these materials into new symbols to invite a new way of living and inhabiting the home. “Branzi’s neo-primitivitism takes into account mundane things, advanced technology and a return to nature.
