Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007) attended architecture school in Milan before working as a design consultant to the Olivetti company, an appointment which culminated the Olivetti Valentine typewriter (1969). As Sottsass moved away from  pure functionalism, he became an acknowledged leader in the Anti-Design movement, which opposed “correctness” and “good taste.” In 1981, he led the Memphis movement, producing colorful, multifunctional and ambiguous pieces that broke conventional forms and poked fun at the seriousness of functional objects. His work is extensive and ranges from ashtrays, vases, to architecture and beyond.
