This book considers Sottsass's substantial contribution to office equipment and furniture design, including the Olivetti Valentine typewriter and LSX 3000 computer; his architectural work over the decades; and his later work from the 1980s, when he broke from classical modern design to pursue deconstructed post-modern design under the Memphis group label. Often referred to as the century of design, the 20th century saw the rise of the engineer-artist, the industrial designer who created the forms and the functionality of the products that advances in technology and industry made possible. This series looks at some of the most important designers of the mid-century, offering critical analyses of their careers and designs, illustrated with black and white photos and drawings on nearly every page.
