11 design icons for less than 5 euros

Milestones of anonymous design, objects that have been iconized by art or everyday life, masterpieces living incognito: it might cost less than we expected.

Would you ever buy a switch? Not a unique piece, no rare wood or ceramics. Just a switch. We would suggest you hold on for a while, before dropping any categorical answer. Should you suddenly learn what we are talking about is the project that Achille Castiglioni was most proud of, would you still give that same answer?

Let’s repeat the experiment, with the canned tomato soup you might be bringing with you, back form a trip. Alright: too easy. Easy to guess the brand, the reason, and its value.

Many objects can be found, within the 5-euro price range, that are actual icons of the so-called anonymous design, or objects that have been iconized by history or art, or objects coming from the work of famous designers that we might just have neglected so far. Domus is proposing a synthetic and heterogeneous collection.
