in the video below, filmmaker matthew donaldson heads to pigozzi’s magnificent residence-cum-playpen, the villa dorane, where the entrepreneur, art collector, and photographer talks about his many collaborations with designer ettore sottsass, particularly their creative cooperation on world-famous french dwelling. on the most meaningful aspect of working with the late italian master, pigozzi says, ‘important art can have a sense of humor, ‘so why not put a sense of humor in your house? that’s what I liked about working with him’
