Described as a "Pop Paradise", this 1953-neo classical home in Cap d’Antibes was redesigned by the late-Italian architect Ettore Sottsass for bon-vivant Jean Pigozzi. A rigorous radical, Ettore Sottsass challenged the conventional wisdom of form and proportion for more than 65 years. Driven by a personal search for a new language of modern design, his pursuits led to the creation of work grounded in radical anti-design, post-modernist architecture and the foundation for the Memphis Movement in the early 1980s. His iconic built works include Milan's Malpensa Airport completed in 2000 and designs for Alessi, Olivetti and Serralunga.
In this film by Matthew Donaldson for Nowness, we go inside the house that's host to the legendary Festival de Cannes every year and is a bold and playful homage to Jean Pigozzi and Ettore Sottsass's creative collaboration and friendship.
