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. He was one of a group of Italian designers and architects MaruTomi commissioned to design tabletop items that would allow the company to explore creating modern plastic versions of traditional lacquerware.
