The GoddessóLa Dťesse

Investigations on the Legendary CitroŽn DS

By Christian Sumi.

The GoddessóLa Dťesse

A celebration of the beloved CitroŽn DS, icon of screen, street and style, through drawings, photos and ephemera

From the moment of its debut in 1955, the CitroŽn DS was a sensation and a magnet for movie stars, designers, philosophers and politicians alike. No other automobile was able to combine form and technology so coherently and seemingly effortlessly. Radical in its implementation and revolutionary in terms of comfort and safety, the DS is one of the most innovative design icons of the 20th century.

In collaboration with Lars MŁller Publishers, the Swiss architect Christian Sumi published the new edition of AS in DS (Alison Smithson in DS) in 2001. In this new book, he examines the characteristics of this classic vehicle, such as the body, the chassis or the legendary hydraulics, which he documents in carefully arranged picture series and with drawings by Flaminio Bertoni and the CitroŽn design team. Using image essays from advertising campaigns for the CitroŽn DS, Sumi critically examines its reception and iconization, along with theories that discuss the phenomenon in both a contemporary and philosophical context.
