Description

Ettore Sottsass, published by Phaidon, presents Ettore Sottsass, a pioneer of modern design known especially for his colourful work and radical attitude. The huge, almost 500-page work traces the life and work of the Italian designer and architect through beautiful images, drawings and sketches, from the beginning of his career in the 1940s to the 21st century. Sottsass's architectural projects, product design, ceramics, sculpture and graphic art are all included in this comprehensive volume.

The re-release of this highly acclaimed title demonstrates the continual fascination, from both fans and collectors, with the life and work of Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass. The designer's work is popular and influential in equal measure, from his designs for Olivetti (such as the striking, bright red, manual typewriter, the Valentine, with its ingenious carry-case) to the post-modern brilliance of the work of the Memphis Group, founded by Sottsass in Milan in 1980.
