Exhibition view ETTORE SOTTSASS | OLIVETTI CONNECTION, Hans-Peter Jochum

Architect and Designer Ettore Sottsass has had a long standing, tight working connection with the house of Olivetti, a productive connection that is the focus of two parallel exhibitions: Ettore Sottsass at Ulrich Fiedler, and Olivetti Connection at Hans-Peter Jochum. The show at Ulrich Fiedler Gallery features Ettore Sottsass’ work from the fifties, while Hans-Peter Jochum is exhibiting the Olivetti Connection, a show dedicated to key exponents from the design and architecture archives of the OLIVETTI business empire – objects whose breadth and significance was determined by the likes of Ettore Sottsas, Ugo Sissa, Studio BBPR and Hans von Klier.
