Therefore, a Memphis style furniture piece is essential in any interior design project.

Memphis Style Furniture

Memphis Design furniture is a merge of art deco with pop art and a pinch of 1950s kitsch aesthetic. The postmodern design style was created by Memphis Milano, or the Memphis Group, a group of Italian designers and architects led by Ettore Sottsass delivered objects and furniture with streamlined shapes, maximalist silhouettes, and vibrant finishes. The main characteristics of this design style is the symmetry and verticality of art deco, the bold patterns of modern graphic design, the vibrant colors of commercial art and product design, and the timelessness of black and white stripes.

Memphis Design Style

The Memphis Design Style created by the Memphis Group is one of the most instantly recognizable design styles and blends art deco with pop art. The design movement born in the living room of Ettore Sottsass on the evening of December 11, 1980. Sottsass invited a group of 22 Italian architects and designers to discuss the future of design. In common, they disliked the simplicity of Modernism, its use of modest lines, bland shapes, and neutral colors.

The Memphis Group decided to design and create decorative objects, fabrics, prints, ceramics, and furniture with unusual shapes, colors, materials, and perspectives. The Memphis Milano group was bold enough to create ‘bad-taste’ objects that would get bad critical acclaim at the time. Little did they know that groundbreaking as they were, their unique aesthetics would become a design movement that would be trendy for decades on – and would inspire new artists and brands to combine geometric and sterile shapes with bold colors, materials, and finishes.
