Ettore Sottsass, one of the best italian designers and architects of last 50 years, died few hours ago in Italy at the age of 90.
This blog participates to the pain and sadness created by this death and is close to the family.
I had, personally, a great pleasure in meeting this great man in Art Center while I was a student, I remember his conference as one of the most passionate lessons in Design.
Ettore the Design community will miss you…
