Composed from geometric shapes in bianco carrara marble, rosa portogallo marble, and brass, this centerpiece was designed by Ettore Sottsass and edited by Up & Up in 1983. This piece represents Sottsass in a particularly intellectual mood, referencing Italy’s classical heritage and centuries-old artisanal traditions. The maker's mark can be found on the base.

 

Born in Innsbruck but raised in Milan, Sottsass (1917-2007) was a visionary architect-designer. While his approach and sensibility were entirely his own, his legacy has been enormously influential to the generations who have followed.
