Ettore Sottsass's influence is everywhere in 2014, from saturated colors to postmodern silhouettes to a retrospective exhibition during Milan Design Week. Now you can snap up a piece of the magic—his Yantra series vase, in bright yellow, will yield an estimated $1,000-$1,500 with no reserve.

(See some of Sottsass's private collection, auctioned off in late 2013 at Christie's.)
