Plastic years. Sottsass, Memphis and the modern 1980s
Written by Redazioneweb   

1-tawaraya-with-designers-1981-ph-studio-azzurro.pngIn the 1980s, designer Ettore Sottsass and his students created a lab to develop new projects of revolutionary, pop art-inspired design.

 

Memphis. Plastic Field tells the story of that season and presents at Biennale a selection of the group’s most famous works, modern productions of the years 1981- 1987.

 

An underwood of black plastic plants subdues any colour around it and forces us to focus on the bright hues of décor and furniture. 

 

The bold stances of the Memphis Group appears in the structure of the exhibition itself and its geometrical structure identical to that of Carlton, an iconic bookstore Sottsass designed in 1981.
