Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass (1917 – 2007) was an Austrian/Italian architect and designer. In 1939 he graduated in architecture from the Turin polytechnic. Sottsass was an influential, highly original and occasionally despised Italian designer and architect who was a leading member of the group which established postwar Italy’s reputation for design. 

He founded the architect studio ‘Sottsass Associati’ in 1980. He designed some nice, colourful houses and is therefore one of my favourite architects. Who wouldn’t like to live in one of these houses.
