About:Memphis
The group originally intended to call themselves “The New Design”

Whilst listening to "Stuck Inside of Mobile (With the Memphis Blues Again)" by Bob Dylan the record stuck on the line "Memphis Blues Again".

Sottsass said: “Okay, let’s call it Memphis” the others thought that sounded cool, so MEMPHIS was born.
About:Memphis
MEMPHIS was a group of young furniture and product designers based in Milan, Italy.

It was led by the veteran architect and designer Ettore Sottsass.

The MEMPHIS style reflected the flamboyant designs that dominated popular culture in the 1980’s.

About:Memphis
Their solution was to experiments with unconventional materials, historic forms, motifs, flashily colours, and strange patterns.

Many Memphis design looked like they came from 1950s comic books (if you have watched the movie Planet51, you will have seen where the inspiration came from).
About:Memphis
There was no set formula. That was the point.

No-one tried to dicate forms, colours, styles or decorations.

Sottsass and his collaborators longed to be liberated from the tyranny of what had been known as ‘good taste’ in design.
About:Memphis
The Memphis designers started breaking design rules in December 1980.

Ettore Sottsass, one of Italy’s architectural grandees, met with a group of younger architects in his apartment on Milan.

He was in his 60s they were in their 20s.
