Ettore Sottsass (1917–2007) was an Italian architect and designer during the 20th century. His body of work spanned furniture, jewellery, glass, lighting and objects, as well as many buildings and interiors. He is most celebrated as the founder of the Memphis Group, famous for its flamboyant and neo-baroque pieces, full of colour and whimsy.
Sottsass’s unique aesthetic and process attracted many producers to collaborate with him. This high console table or mini bar was a collaboration between Sottsass and manufacturer, Ultima Edizione. It has a robust architectural quality to it, a sort of pastiche of classicism. Three weighty white marble base pieces support a series of black cylindrical columns that rise to support a demilune red marble top. The piece is in excellent condition for its age with very few signs of use.
