Cartier Design Viewed by Ettore Sottsass by Ettore Sottsass

Book Description

Richly illustrated, this catalogue accompanies an international jewelry exhibition. Ettore Sottsass presents the Collection Art de Cartier in a brilliant new manner, viewing the collection as a reflection of form and design, while understanding its function and relation with the surrounding space and the bodies it adorns. For this impressive project Ettore Sottsass has selected over 200 jewels, watches and accessories following his personal and intuitive taste forgoing epochs and fashion trends, and creates and highlights the ties amongst the materials, style and colour. To emphasize his vision, for each piece Sottsass creates a decorative element meant to contain the object as a shrine located in a cosmic space.

Author Biography - Ettore Sottsass

Ettore Sottsass was born in Austria in 1917. As a design consultant for Olivetti where he stayed, for over 30 years he designed the first Italian electronic calculator and various typewriters such as Praxis and Valentine. In 1981 he establishes the Memphis group, which soon becomes a symbol for "new design" and a reference point for avant-garde work. His work is part of various permanent collections in museums around the world such as: Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. This book is suitable for jewelry aficionados, collectors, art historians, designers, architects, and followers of Sottsass.
