Ettore Sottsass has been a towering presence in Italian design for more than half a century.

Best known as founder of the groundbreaking 1980s design group Memphis, he has also designed famous glass and ceramic products for Alessi, landmark electronic products for Olivetti, and has worked as an architect.

In a career that spans more than six decades, Sottsass has produced an enormous breadth of work, reflecting a theoretical approach to design, and drawing on personal influences from popular culture.

To mark Ettore Sottsassâ 90th birthday in 2007 the Design Museum will exhibit his most iconic designs, celebrating a remarkable life in design.
