We are excited to announce that the Neolithic Shelving unit designed by our creative director and Founder, Ryan Hanrahan, for Page Thirty Three, has been commissioned by the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, and will be included as part of the retail component of the Ettore Sottsass retrospective - Design Radical, this coming July.
The Neolithic shelving unit will be available for purchase in the retail section of the show.
It will be set amongst Ettore Sottsass’s pieces and other key global designers who’s work references the themes of the legendary designer’s ‘Memphis’ design style, that he coined in the 1980’s.
More about the Exhibition
Ettore Sottsass : Design Radical
At the Met Breuer July 21-October 8, 2017
A seminal figure in 20th-century design, the Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) created a vast body of work, the result of an exceptionally productive career that spanned more than six decades.
This exhibition will reevaluate Sottsass’s career in a presentation of key works in a range of media—including architectural drawings, interiors, furniture, machines, ceramics, glass, jewellery, textiles and pattern, painting, and photography. The exhibition will present Sottsass’s work in dialogue with ancient and contemporaneous objects that inspired him, as well as his influence on designers working today.
