Art and furniture pioneer Wendell Castle introduced Nicholas Kilner, director of Sebastian + Barquet gallery in New York, to Officina 11—the little-known Italian collaboration of Fabio de Sanctis (b. 1931) and Ugo Sterpini (b. 1927)—which produced furniture so trippy, the designers were invited to show in the Paris Surrealists Exhibition of 1965. “Their irreverent approach to good taste helped lay the foundation for the antidesign movements of the Sixties and Seventies,” says Kilner. His favorite: the Cielo, Mare, Terra cabinet, which is mounted on lion’s feet and fronted by a pair of pink Mark I Fiat 600 doors.
