Ettore Sottsass Jr. 60'- 70'

Milco Carboni


Hyx Editions, 2007. Hardcover, 296pp., 9.75 x 11.75 inches. French language.


Drawing in part on the FRAC Centre collection, this book gathers together unique works and projects – drawings, furniture, objects, ceramics, photographs, written works and architecture – wherein over a period of time Sottsass frees himself from the principles of functionalism and rationalism and moves towards the development of a new sensorial language. Overflowing with full page images and containing minimal French text, this publication allows for an fascinating insight into one of the most important designers of the 20th century.
