There is no question that in the last decade, we saw a revival of the Memphis Design Milano movement that captured the popular imagination. The collective, brought to life in the early 1980s by the Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass in reaction to the austerity of modernism, was known for its tendency for eye-catching asymmetry and Pop color palettes. Additionally, synthetic and composite materials are incorporated, and these are the characteristics that resonated with Instagram influencers and supervisors alike.
Now, in a new decade, the Memphis Design movement has not entirely abandoned its influential control on the work of emerging talents. Functionalism is not enough, design must also be sensual and exciting. The Stockholm designer Gustaf Westman says: “My objects are supposed to be friendly and fun, and hopefully are an escape from reality in some sort of way. That is what the Memphis group did, too.”
Many contemporary designers interpret the patterns and colors of Memphis Design in their fresh ways, evolving the collective’s design language and customizing it for the way we live today.
