Design is fine. History is mine. Enjoy my taste.
Xanti Schawinsky, Olivetti shop in Turin, 1935.
The work was done by a decorator, a Bauhaus student called Xanti Schawinsky, who condensed the finest and most significant elements of European Rationalism in his work. Only very rarely, especially in Italy, have we seen a similar work in which the purity of design, the appropriate use of materials and the balanced forms surpass the genre of the project to become worthy of consideration as a work of art.
