Groundbreaking project from Archizoom founder Branzi, who along with others formed Il Centro Design Montefibre, to research textiles, fibres and colours. Decorattivo was intended to be an annual publication, though only 2 were published by Idea. The themes for Decorattivo 1 are UFO, a decorative system created from space objects, and amorphous designs connected to spontaneous processes. As far as research and as a sourcebook- it is yet to be bettered!
