LA TRIENNALE DI MILANO
A monographic exhibition devoted to Ettore Sottsass on the occasion of the centenary of his birth
Marking the centenary of the birth of Ettore Sottsass (Innsbruck 1917-2007 Milan), the Triennale Design Museum is presenting a monographic exhibition devoted to him in the spaces of the Galleria dell’Architettura. It will be accompanied by a book and a catalogue.
The title of the exhibition, and of the book, There is a Planet, is that of a project that Sottsass started in the 1990s for the German publisher Wasmuth, but never completed. The project for the book, now published by Electa, was to form five groups of photographs taken by Sottsass on his travels around the world, each with its own title and essay. The photos would be of architecture, houses, doors, people and situations involving dwellings and, in more general terms, the presence of humans on the planet.
