Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) is most often associated with his iconic red Olivetti Valentine typewriter from the 1960s and founding the Postmodern Milan-based Memphis Group in the 1980s.  This small in scale yet monumental picture frame bears its designer’s signature bold materials and modern interpretation of classical forms. ­­­­
