Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass (1917 - 2017)

Architecte et designer majeur du XXeme siècle, Etore Sottsass va développer, au fil de ses rencontres (Gio Ponti, Georges Nelson) et de ses découvertes (le Pop Art) son propre style, souvent en opposition avec les préceptes de son temps. Il est à l'origine de nombreuses pièces iconiques, dont la plus célébre, son miroir Ultrafragola (1970) aux lignes ultra-sensuelles. En 1980, il fonde le groupe Memphis. L'utilisation de matériaux colorés, bon marché associés de manière novatrice apporte un vent de gaieté et renouveau sur le design.
