Ettore Sottsass Sketched His Autobiography

Prolific and significant, architect and designer Ettore Sottsass sketched an illustrated autobiography back in 1993. Now published in a new edition of Phaidon’s “Ettore Sottsass,” these sketches offer a fascinating peep inside the brain of a master. They’re incredibly charming and accompanied by poetic notes of interest. (An especially interesting one: as a child, he enjoyed designing cemeteries.) Proving Sottsass was quite a sensitive soul, this illustrated autobiography makes for quite the exploration. Read and see more at FastCo.
