Ettore Sottsass was an Italian architect and designer who, over the course of his 60-year career, completely changed our notion of design. The exhibition “Ettore #Sottsass : Design Radical,” which closes this Sunday at The Met Breuer, reevaluates Sottsass's career in a presentation of key works in a range of media. #TheMet#MetBreuer#EttoreSottsass

"Pensieri di pace" - Fernanda Pivano & Ettore Sottsass jr., 1966
Thoughts of peace: a delightful New year wishes booklet with text by writer Fernanda Pivano, and Silk-Screens by designer/architect Ettore Sottsass.
The message is timeless:
There is pepper and there is salt
There is noise and there is silence
There are seas and there are mountains
There is blood and there is love
There are deserts and there are fields
There is mortadella and there is caviar
There are storms and there are rainbows
But every day the sun sets.
