This week Sarah Archer is taking over my weekly content! Tune in again tomorrow and Thursday for more awesome design posts.
Sarah is a craft and design maven with a soft spot for all things midcentury. She writes a monthly column on ceramics and glass for Antiques Magazine and is a frequent contributor to Hyperallergic. You can read some of her recent writing here.
And, now, for Sarah's Favorite of the Week: The new exhibition “Ettore Sottsass: Design Radical” has just opened at The Met Breuer, curated by Christian Larsen. This eye-popping show features many of Sottsass’s classics, like the Valentine Typewriter he designed for Olivetti, alongside some lesser-known works such as this boldly graphic “Cabinet No. 56” from 2003 that deftly combines old and new: ebonized pearwood veneer contrasts with bright red acrylic.
