Anna Moreno’s Plastic, Marble, and Helicopters renders 1970s utopian architecture into a speculative myth, flung at us from an atemporal, near future. It is the culmination of a year-long research into Global Tools, a pioneering pedagogical project initiated in 1972 by various architecture studios from the Italian radical design movement led by Ettore Sottsass. Global Tools proclaimed the “re-founding of manual labor,” and the use of “poor technique” and “simple technology” while invoking the body as the ultimate form of architecture, a site with hidden political and creative potential. Sottsass was then the artistic director of Poltronova, a high-end furniture firm, and research center that still produces some of Global Tools’s members’ iconic designs. The irony of the pro-Marxist group’s coziness with the luxury furniture market does not escape Moreno’s eye. 

With support from Poltronova, Moreno produced a four-piece modular sofa, which she used as a performative prop at the Space Electronic club during its 50th-anniversary event. The Florentine discotheque was the underground hub where Global Tools enacted some of its seminal experiments. Rather than reenacting these experiments, Moreno’s performances thoughtfully re-propose them.
