ABOUT THE MEMPHIS STYLE

  • The Memphis style was a deliberate and quite conscious attempt to break away from Modernism
  • The Memphis style includes the archetypal technical and cartoon elements emerging in a post-World War II world culture.
  • Most Memphis designers see their creations not as objects, but as political and cultural statements;
  • Memphis designers see their sculpture is as existential metaphor and visual poetry, and a very deliberate challenge to classic notions of design.
  • The Memphis style emerged from Modernism, in both America and Europe , and from Italy in particular.
  • The Pop style introduced new cultural interpretations of post-World War archetypes but the style contained an irreverent twist and did not endure.
  • The first Memphis collection appeared in 1981 in Milan, Italy.
  • The designers included, but were not limited to Ettore Sottsass, Jr. , Matteo Thus, Marco Zanini and Aldo Cibic, all trained architects and industrial designers.
  • These talents formed the core of what is now referred to as The Memphis Group.
  • They became, and have remained, a tremendously influential Italian design and architecture movement.
