By Philippe Thom

Architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (Italian, 19172007) is perhaps best known as the founder of the Memphis Group. He once said: "When I was young, all we ever heard about was functionalism, functionalism, functionalism. It's not enough. Design should also be sensual and exciting."

Packed with beautiful images taken from the Sottsass archives, many of which have never been published before, this book looks at his entire career. The text is ordered chronologically and split into periods, each containing sections on the main disciplines that Sottsass pursued in that period along with biographical material.
