A seminal figure in 20th-century design, the Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007) created a vast body of work, the result of an exceptionally productive career that spanned more than six decades. This exhibition will reevaluate Sottsass's career in a presentation of key words in a range of media--including architectural drawings, interiors, furniture, machines, ceramics, glass, jewelry, textiles and pattern, painting, and photography. The exhibition will present Sottsass's work in dialogue with ancient and contemporaneous objects that influenced his practice. This juxtaposition will offer new insight into his designs, situating him within a broader design discourse.
