He gained renown with his designs for the office equipment manufacturer Olivetti, for his poetic, minimalist sculptural objects, and as the leading figure of the Memphis design collective in the 1980s. Over the course of his long career, Ettore Sottsass moved between disciplines, leaving behind a fascinating oeuvre that at Vitra Schaudepot is represented by approximately 30 of his furniture designs, consumer products, as well as numerous photographs and writings.
