A postmodernist design and architecture group founded in Milan by Ettore Sottsass in 1981. Their work was bold, colorful, geometric, playful, absurd, bizarre, and even loathed by some. There are more than 15 members including Michael Graves (Portland Building), Alessandro Mendini, Michele de Lucchi, Martine Bedin, Thomas Bley, Andrea Branzi, Beppe Cateregli, Aldo Cibic, Nathalie du Pasquier, Massimo Iosa Ghini, Giovanni Levanti, Marzio Rusconi Clerici & Laura Agnoletto, Gary Morga, Matteo Thun, Ettore Sottsass, Gerard Taylor, Masanori Umeda, Marco Zanini, Marco Zanuso Jr and journalist Barbara Radice. (Also, Peter Shire is often associated with the group) The Memphis style derives from Art Deco, Pop Art, 1950ís Kitsch, and bathed in a playful approach to making. It wasnít taken seriously at the time (by some), but remains to be highly influential.
