Synopsis: "

Take a glimpse inside the archive of the founder of the Memphis Group and designer of the Olivetti Valentine typewriter in Ettore Sottsass, a lavishly illustrated monograph chronicling the life and works of the unparalleled Italian designer and architect.

A gorgeous object in itself, the unique design of the book allows it to either be read cover–to–cover as a narrative history, or by discipline, picking up the relative thread under each period, with multi–colored tabs to distinguish each sub–chapter. Packed with 800 beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives – many of which have never been published before – and including drawings and sketches from the designer’s countless sketchbooks, the book also includes four short essays from experts in their fields, including Deyan Sudjic, director of London’s Design Museum.

Book Description Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007) gilt als einer der Väter der Postmoderne. Doch der Reihe nach: Schon in den 1950er Jahren machte er als Designer von sich reden, der neuartige Materialien wie Fiberglas für seine Möbel und Lampen verwendete. In den 1960er Jahren machten seine unkonventionellen Entwürfe für den Schreibmaschinenhersteller Olivetti Furore. Von der Pop Art beeinflusst, schuf er trendige Bars in Mailand und z.B. den »Micky-Maus-Tisch«. 1981 schließlich gründete er die berühmte Memphis-Group, Keimzelle für das Design der Postmoderne. Dieser monumentale Band lässt das Werk von Ettore Sottsass gebührend Revue passieren. Zu entdecken sind seine Ikonen des Designs in Aufnahmen von allen Seiten und en détail, seine rote Schreibmaschine »Valentine« ebenso wie Möbel, Keramiken, Grafikdesign und Architektur. Außerdem werden zahlreiche seiner Entwurfszeichnungen und Skizzen qualitätsvoll abgebildet, so dass die Entstehung seiner Werke aufs Feinste nachvollzogen werden kann. Das Buch selbst würde Sottsass gefallen: Es ist mit einem türkisfarbenen Einband versehen, der durch Magneten verschließbar ist. (Text engl. Phaidon) 23 x 32 cm, 500 S., 800 farb. Abb., geb. mit Magnetverschluss. Bookseller Inventory # 651451
