Memphis Style – of the 1980’s, by an Italian group of designers. It was part of Postmodernism which was a rejection of the Modern Movement. Principles: ART & FORM OVER FUNCTION and MORE IS MORE – both in opposition to those of Modernism. Some of its features: unexpected forms, graphic patterns, clashing colors, cheap materials like plastic. The style has a distinct signature look, w/ the use of now iconic designer furniture pieces & fun patterns. It’s vibrant, funky, quirky, theatrical & more.
