The life and work of Ettore Sottsass is more relevant than ever, with exhibitions around the world and renewed collector interest in the Memphis movement. Now available in a new format, this book, packed with beautiful images taken from the extensive Sottsass archives and including drawings and sketches from the designer's countless sketchbooks, explores his entire career from the 1940s to the 2000s, covering everything from his architectural projects and product design to his jewellery, sculpture, and graphics.

Here is a suitable memorial to an exceptional life: eclectic, serious, and detailed as well as delightful, surprising, and utterly inspiring. The production is faultless, and superlative pictures illustrate, both precisely and anecdotally, the vast range of Sottsass's work. -The Spectator Sottsass's work, as the book makes evident, is so vibrant and comprehensive that one feels caught in the spell of his creations. -Surface Surveys the career of one of Italy's more distinguished 20th-century designers. But distinguished hardly fits Sottsass's striking yet playful output. -Elle Decor I love everything about Sottsass's work - it's modern, optimistic, humorous, functional, and intelligent. The designs in this book make me feel proud to be Italian. -Donatella Versace
