Critique: ""The book is a totemic object itself. In a world where it can seem as if designers are trying to fit everything into a monochrome package the size of your hand, "Sottsass" is everything but that. No cardboard, indeed." - The New York Times Book Review"Lavishly illustrated. . . cleverly designed. . . "Ettore Sottsass" is one of the latest great coffee table books." - "BLOUIN ArtInfo""Phillipe Thome's new book, "Ettore Sottsass," surveys the career of one of Italy's more distinguished 20th-century designers. But "distinguished" hardly fits Sottsass's striking yet playful output. . . " - "ELLE Decor""stunning. . . Sottsass's work, as the book makes evident, is so vibrant and comprehensive that one feels caught in the spell of his creations." - "Surface""I have been obsessed with the Italian architect and designer Sottsass and the Memphis Group he found all my life. I love everything about Sottsass's work - it's modern, optimistic, humorous, functional and intelligent. The designs in this book make me feel proud to be Italian." - Donatella Versace"The book itself stands as a piece of art, beautifully designed from the bright bifold cover to all that lays within. . . Sottsass did it all and Thome presents it in a beautiful fashion. As one of the most significant visionaries in the field, Sottsass cannot go unstudied - and with this book, it's a delight to do so." - CoolHunting"["Sottsass"] has a quirky sculptural presence all its own and comes in a very Sottsass pistachio ice cream cover (with blink-making zebra stripe endpapers). Here is a suitable memorial to an exceptional life: eclectic, serious and detailed as well as delightful, surprising, and utterly inspiring. The production is faultless, and superlative pictures illustrate, both precisely and anecdotally, the vast range of Sottsass's work: buildings, furniture, paintings, jewelry, ceramics, glass, graphics, office equipment." - "The Spectator" (UK)"
