Memphis:  Memphis This presentation was produced by Mr Steve Smith Bettws High School Newport As part of a GTCW network project 1 Slide 10 Slide 40 Slide 20 Slide 30 Memphis:  Memphis School Improvement Service A GTCW project 2 Memphis:  Memphis In 1980 the Memphis group led by Ettore Sottsass rejected the principle of functional design and the rules of `good taste` which was the cornerstone of the Modernism. They regarded design as being fashion, with outrageous styles appearing for a season then disappearing just as quickly. 3 Memphis:  Memphis Carlton 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Carlton Sideboard. Material: Covered in Plastic Laminate. The Carlton Sideboard presents itself loudly as a symbolic monument to all things Memphis. Part cartoon figure, part totem pole and part bookcase, the Carlton embodies Ettore Sottsass’ commitment to the joint stimuli of contemporary pop culture and ancient cultures. 4 Memphis:  Memphis 5 Memphis:  Memphis Tahiti 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Lamp The `Bacterio` laminate pattern used on the base was first developed by Ettore Sottsass in the late 1970’s and was used in experimental furniture developed by Studio Alchymia. Material: Plastic Laminate & Metal `Tahti` typifies the Disney-like naivety and impudence associated with so many Memphis products. 6 Memphis:  Memphis 7 Ettore Sottsass:  Ettore Sottsass Ettore Sottsass was born in Austria in 1917. In 1935 he went to Turin to study architecture and later became a freelance architect and designer, and has since worked for companies such as Olivetti and more recently Alessi. In 1981 Sottsass and a group of like minded designers and architects formed the Memphis group which experimented with design and reacted against the modernist principle that `form should follow function`. The group explored new ways of using materials and combining different historical, cultural and artistic influences in their work. 8 Memphis:  Memphis Super 1981 – Martine Bedin Fibreglass Lamp The Glossy Art Deco look of the base is offset by the lamps push along playfulness and bare-bulbed simplicity. Martine Bedin also worked with the avante-garde design group Superstudio in Florence before joining Studio Alchymia. 9 Memphis:  Memphis 10 Memphis:  Memphis 11 Memphis:  Memphis Lamp In contrast to the idea that `Good Design` should be seamless and homogeneous each geometric shape used in the design of the lamp is given a colour of its own. Treetops 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Material: Metal This use of colour accentuates the fact it is made up from an assortment of component parts. 12 Memphis:  Memphis 13 Memphis:  Memphis Lido 1982 – Michelle De Lucchi Material: Wood, Plastic Laminate, Metal & Fabric Sofa This squat Lido sofa mixes different historical styles. 14 Memphis:  Memphis 15 Memphis:  Memphis D’Antibes 1981 – George Sowden Cabinet Despite its classical lines, the D’Antibes cabinet appears playful and fragile rather than functional, thanks to the exaggerated elongation of its spindly legs. Material: Lacqured and Silkscreen Wood. The cabinet is painted in bright nursery colours. 16 Memphis:  Memphis 17 Memphis:  Memphis 18 Memphis:  Memphis Sinerpica 1979 – Michele De Lucchi Lamp Material: Enamelled Metal. 19 Memphis:  Memphis First 1993 – Michele De Lucchi Chair A simple stool with one steel tube added as a backrest, the design of the `first` chair is ideally suited to mass production. Lightweight but stable. Material: Metal & Lacquered Wood. The `First` has proved to be one of Memphis’ best selling furniture pieces. 20 Memphis:  Memphis Riviera 1981 – Michelle De Lucchi Chair The Riviera chair is a deliberate statement of `bad taste`. Material: Metal, Plastic Laminate and Pink Chintz. Michelle De Lucchi worked with Studio Alchymia and Sottsass Associati in Milan before becoming one of the most active and versatile members of Memphis. 21 Memphis:  Memphis Kyoto 1983 – Shiro Kuramata Table The Kyoto’ elegant simplicity is offset by the use of brightly coloured Terrazzo. This material is not usually associated with domestic furniture. Material: Metal & Terrazzo. 22 Memphis:  Memphis 23 Memphis:  Memphis Svincolo 1979 – Ettore Sottsass Material: Plastic Laminate & Neon. Lamp Designed for Studio Alcymia. 24 Memphis:  Memphis Ashoka 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Material: Painted Metal Lamp 25 Memphis :  Memphis Casablanca 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Cupboard The Casablanca showcases Sottsass’ use of decorated plastic laminates, which he embraced as `a material with no culture`. Sottsass wanted to bring laminates out of the kitchen, bathroom and playroom into the formal rooms of the house. Material: Plastic Laminate, Wood. 26 Memphis:  Memphis 27 Memphis:  Memphis Beverly Sideboard 1981 – Ettore Sottsass Sideboard The Beverly Sideboard is one of Sottsass’ more radical designs. The use of plastic laminate contrasts with the rare natural briar wood. Material: Plastic Laminate, Natural Briar & Metal This piece is an example of Memphis’ practice of using the rare and the commonplace together. 28 Memphis:  Memphis Oceanic 1981 – Michele De Lucchi Lamp The form of this lamp gives the impression of an advancing sea snake. This is enhanced by the cable running through each of the candy strip tubes. Material: Metal 29 Memphis:  Memphis Ginza 1982 – Masanori Umeda Material: Wood, Metal & Plastic Laminate Cabinet 30 Memphis:  Memphis 31 Memphis:  Memphis Cuculus Canorus 1982 – Matteo Thun Teapot Material: Ceramic 32 Memphis:  Memphis Kristall 1981 – Michele De Lucchi Table This table has been described as an obedient dog waiting patiently besides its master’s chair or alternatively a waiter carrying a tray high above his head through a crowded bar. Material: Plastic Laminate, Lacquered Wood & Metal. 33 Memphis:  Memphis Alcor 1983 – Ettore Sottsass Vase Material: Blown Glass 34 Memphis:  Memphis Sol – Ettore Sottsass Fruit Dish Working in glass and ceramics Ettore Sottsass enjoyed even greater freedom from the modernist principle of form following function. Material: Glass The unusual combination of blown glass and worked shapes demonstrates Sottsass’ desire to create new and expressive products. 35 Memphis:  Memphis 36 Memphis:  Memphis Api 1981 – Matteo Thun Ashtray Matteo Thuns designs are complex sculptures whose function is secondary to their appearance Material: Ceramic 37 Memphis:  Memphis Carrot Vase 1985 – Nathalie Pasquier Vase Material: Ceramic 38 Memphis:  Memphis Cucumber 1985 – Martine Bedin Vase Material: Ceramic 39 Memphis:  Memphis 40 Memphis:  Memphis Caravanserraglio 1979 – Ettore Sottsass Bowl Material: Lacquered Wood 41 Memphis:  Memphis 42 Memphis:  Memphis Titicaa 1982 – Matteo Thun Vase Material - Porcelain Although often outrageous in appearance some of the pieces like `Titicaa` demonstrated extraordinary craftsmanship. 43 Memphis:  Memphis 44 Memphis:  Memphis Ontario Erie Superior Michigan 1982 – Matteo Thun Pepper / Salt Shaker Material: Ceramic 45 Memphis:  Memphis Tindouf 1979 – Paola Navone Wooden Cabinet with Shutter Material: Plastic Laminate & Wood. Shutter finished in Lacquer 46 Memphis:  Memphis Tavolino Primavera 1980 – Ettore Sottsass Table Material: Aluminium & Laminate Base 47 Memphis:  Memphis Piccadilly 1982 – Gerald Taylor Small Lamp Material: Plastic Laminate & Metal Gerald Taylor was born in Glasgow and moved to Milan in 1982 after studying at the Royal Academy. 48 Memphis:  Memphis Tawaraya ring 1981 – Masanori Umeda 49 Memphis:  Memphis 50
