Reviews

"Against the backdrop of governmental and social unrest, a group of young architects and artists forges a politically resonant design movement. It could be a narrative of today, but the contingent in question is the subject of 'SuperDesign.'"
--Elle Decor

"Today's resurgence of maximalism-an eclectic mix of patterns, materials, colors, shapes, and textures-speaks to a desire to break from imposing authority. It's rooted in similar sentiments to Italian radicals and is materializing in a similar way aesthetically.... that [Italian radicals] remain relevant, somehow, speaks to the power of designers to process the sentiment of a time and give us something beautiful to behold, and, hopefully contemplate."
--Fast Co.Design
