L’Utopie du tout Plastique 1960 – 1973 | Philippe Decelle | Fondation pour l’Architecture, publisher | 1994 | PART 1

Other than maybe living on the set of “The Price is Right” I can’t imagine anything quite as fabulous as the Plasticarium.  It’s a museum, it’s a house, it’s open for guided tours.   Located at Rue de Locquenghien 35, 1000 Bruxelles (Brussels), Belgium (Map) telephone +32 (0) 2 344 98 21, it is the epicenter of all things pop plastic and the setting for the book L’Utopie du tout Plastique 1960-1973.

A YouTube video introduction to Philippe Decelle and his Plasticarium.

Out of print and often very expensive, the book is a bible of sorts for plastic collectors.  Though readily available, it’s difficult to find for less than $100.  Best bet:  keep an eye out for an eBay auction with no reserve and still expect to pay $60 or so.  The book is a comprehensive package of plastic items it’s just a shame aren’t in production any more.  Any fan of plastic design is going to find something on every page to put on their “want list.”

The book is divided into sections.

Art
Functional furniture
Fiberglass
Inflatable PVC
Transparent PMMA
Pop and radical design
Cookware
Electronics
Mod fashions
Architecture

My next posts are going to cover the objects from the L’Utopie book.  In some cases, I’ve tried to assemble some additional information from other sources.  The first post will cover the art objects in the book.
