Ettore Sottsass was the founder of Ettore Sottsass Associati and the Memphis Group. He designed various objects for Olivetti, Poltronova, Alessi, Artemide and later also for Vitra. His time companions included Achille Castiglioni, Alessandro Mendini and Michel De Lucchi. His works, especially his ceramics, are strongly reminiscent of those of Lucie Rie.
