The Memphis movement - fun and fab, or over the top? You decide, at DesignFreo’s autumn sundowner at the unique Offmarket Gallery in Claremont.

The highly influential Memphis design group formed in Milan in 1981 by Italian designer and architect Ettore Sottsass. Their bright and bold furniture design was known as radical, funny and outrageous, whilst rejecting the stripped-back functionality of Modernism in favour of an eclectic mash-up of styles, decoration and colour.

Join DesignFreo on Saturday 20 April to view a rare collection of original and re-issued Memphis furniture, fabric, objects and artworks by movement founders and luminaries including Ettore Sottsass, Nathalie du Pasquier, Michele de Lucchi and George Sowden. Special guest Dr Annette Condello from the School of Design and the Built Environment at Curtin University will give a short talk putting the work into context and you’ll enjoy drinks and nibbles with other design lovers.

The exhibition Back to Memphis - A Design Revolution is presented by Offmarket Gallery in collaboration with Mobilia.
