Ettore Sottsass, (Innsbruck, 1917 – Milan,2007) was an Italian artist, designer and architect. His artwork can be linked to the modern coeval art movements, since from 1948 Sottsass joined the MAC (Movimento di Arte Concreta), exposed in Milan, promoted an exhibition dedicated to the Abstract Art in Italy, and supported Spatialism, the innovative art movement mainly concentrated on the admission of space and time element in artwork. The threedimensional aspect of this black and white lithograph is one of the most relevant aspects of the artwork, probably to be reconnected to the already said interest for Spatialism.

About Ettore Sottsass

An Italian architect and designer known for his large oeuvre including furniture, jewelry, glass, lighting, and office design, Ettore Sottsass was also the founder in the early 1980s of the Memphis Group. Drawing inspiration from such movements as Art Deco and Pop Art, Memphis produced and exhibited furniture and objects that were vibrant in color and futuristic in design. Sottsass’ own work was known for its variety, oftentimes incorporating playfulness through ornamentation and color. His Olivetti typewriter (1969), one of his most celebrated designs, made of bright red-orange plastic, was a Pop phenom in both its functionality and innovative design. His architecture and design career spanned many decades and styles.
