Obituary - Ettore Sottsass

  • Comment
Discussions of Dylan and eating cats are amoung Deyan Sudjic's memories of Ettore Sottsass.
Ettore Sottsass, who died on 31 December 2007, never saw the exhibition that London’s Design Museum staged last year to celebrate his 90th birthday. His back was playing up, so he couldn’t fly.
He did design it though, on the table in his living room in Milan. And an effortlessly brilliant job he made of it too. The first idea was to do something simple; just one object chosen carefully from each of the seven decades of his working life.
