Memphis Style Pattern

 

 

 

 

Inspired by the Memphis Group

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Memphis Group was an Italian design and architecture group founded by Ettore Sottsass in 1980 that designed Postmodern furniture, fabrics, ceramics, glass, and metal objects.

The Memphis group’s work often incorporated plastic laminate and was characterized by ephemeral design featuring colorful and abstract decoration as well as asymmetrical shapes, sometimes arbitrarily alluding to exotic or earlier styles.

On December 1, 1980, Ettore Sottsass organised a meeting with designers, and in 1981 formed a design collaborative named Memphis.

The name was taken after the Bob Dylan song „Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again“ which had been played repeatedly throughout the evening’s meeting.

They drew inspiration from such movements as Art Deco and Pop Art, including styles such as the 1950s Kitsch and futuristic themes.

The group produced and exhibited furniture and design objects, annually from 1981 until 1988.
