Summary
The late Ettore Sottsass, who died in December 2007, was, he says, though Italian, conditioned culturally and visually by the work of the great architects of Vienna like Wagner and Hoffmann. He was destined by his architect father to follow in his footsteps, and he trained in Turin. But World War Two intervened and when he returned to Italy, times were hard and he was too restless to start a practice. However, from 1959 he headed Olivetti's electronics division where he was responsible for the design of a continuous flow of elegant electronic machines - computers, typewriters, teleprinters, and so on. At the same time he was designing for other companies - furniture, small objects, ceramics - pursuing an idea he always had of designing environment starting from microcosm, from small possibilities, fragile materials like paper, and not necessarily with big monuments or town plans
