Homage to the 100th anniversary of Futurism
On occasion of its 100th anniversary, the Rinspeed graphic art collection dedicates five subjects, each of which limited to 20 units, as a homage to the Futurist school, and in particular to points 4 and 5 of its manifesto:
- 4. We declare that the splendor of the world has been enriched by a new beauty: the beauty of speed. A racing automobile with its bonnet adorned with great tubes like serpents with explosive breath..
- 5. We want to sing the man at the wheel, the ideal axis of which crosses the earth, itself hurled along its orbit.
