Memphis Group Retrospective

designboom

A nice photoset from a retrospective exhibition of the Memphis Group founded by Ettore Sottsass over at designboom.

memphis group founded by ettore sottsass in 1980 held a retrospective exhibition titled 'memphis blues' at the galleria carla sozzani earlier this year. curated by barbara radice, the set of exhibition was designed by michele de lucchi and the graphic work was by cristoph radl.

sottsass called memphis design the new international style and plunged the sophisticated and influential milan design world into a labyrinth of visual irony, puns and provocations. the standards of 'good form' design that had been considered unassailable for years lost their claim to timeless validity for sottsass and his fellow-workers. the idea they had in common was to eliminate the peaceful conformity of furniture design and present concrete alternatives to the late 70s standard formal culture. the group existed until 1988.
