under 60


1 September 2001, Italy
design: Raffaele Castiglioni & Adriana Rigamonti

2 stamps from a set of 6.

Patricia Urquiola – this year she had released projects from several companies and she is under 60 years old!  First stamp features a shelving system for Edra, which she took part in at Piero Lissoni’s office.  Second stamp features Bombo, designed by Stefano Giovannoni for Magis, which was and still is one of the most popular bar stools.  And he is under 60, too.

Maybe, the failure of stamp design comes from the photos, which feature objects as furniture catalogues do.  This set of British Design Classics is beautiful, as stamp designer puts priority on composition on stamps and not showing objects in normal way.
