Global Tools was a multidisciplinary experimental program of design education founded in 1973 in Italy by the members of the Radical Architecture including Ettore Sottsass Jr. and Andrea Branzi among others. It was conceived as a diffuse system of laboratories (firstly in Florence, Milan and Naples) promoting the “[...] study and use of natural materials and their behavioural characteristics” with the support of media and aimed to establish an alternative relation with the Italian Industry.
