Ettore Sottsass : The Glass
- one size
The brilliant architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) designed glass wares from 1947 until the end of his career. Colorful and sculptural, these works are intriguingly ambiguous; Sottsass said of them, “I’ve tried to get away from the everyday object and sought to make Glass works with a capital G. Of course, that’s a dangerous approach, because I don’t want to be an artist, or a sculptor, but in the end the objects I produce look like glass sculptures, and yet they aren’t: they’re a mix that’s hard to fathom.”
Published on the 100th anniversary of Sottsass’ birth, this catalogue raisonné documents the entire period of his glass and crystal oeuvre, from the series he designed in the 1970s for Vistosi to the Memphis collections of the 1980s, the symbolic forms of the 1990s, the stunning constructions for the Millennium House in Qatar and the famous Kachinas.
