Ettore Sottsass, father of the Memphis movement, is well known for his outlandish and colourful designs. Trained as an architect, Sottsass also designed numerous buildings, seven of which are private residences. One of these rare gems is now on the market.
What the agent says: "Vested in the build, Sottsass oversaw every detail of this architectural masterpiece which has been well documented and published throughout the world. Each detail holds a purpose and an intention, from the protracted deck inspired by the bridges on the road to Hana, to the unconventional, yet functional features throughout."
What we love:
If you love Memphis style, you will love everything in this 3-bedroom, 2,470 square feet house. Sottsass oversaw the design of every element from the landscaping and furniture down to the cutlery and the penis-shaped vase in the bathroom. This is an impeccable display of a design legend's genius.
What we would do:
We don't dare to make any changes, though it is tempting to update the bathrooms.
