Italian architect Ettore Sottsass designed the wavy-edged, six-foot-tall, neon-lighted Ultrafragola mirror (a take on traditional mirrors made of gilded wood) in 1970; it debuted at the Eurodomus 3 in Milan later that year. The piece, which is still produced in Florence from its original mold, has become emblematic of the 1980s Memphis design movement, which in recent years has had a major resurgence. Keith Johnson, the president and director of Urban Architecture (the first authorized Memphis furniture distributor in the U.S.), says he believes Sottsass designed the Ultrafragola as an homage to women and femininity. “Ultrafragola translates to ‘ultimate strawberry’ in Italian,” he says. “And if you mention a woman’s ‘strawberry’ in Italy, everyone knows what you’re talking about.”
