Page 93, MEMPHIS: RESEARCH, EXPERIENCES, RESULT, FAILURES AND SUCCESSES OF NEW DESIGN by Barbara Radice.
Memphis shook the world — a testament to new, free ways of thinking and seeing, the Memphis movement became a nearly mythical symbol of Modern Design that twinkled with unabashed playfulness, laughing at itself and the buttoned-up culture it bloomed from. And it all started at Barbara Radice's Milan home. Married to Ettore Sottsass, Radice wrote this book as a philosophical manifesto of Memphis, featuring the brilliant no-holds-barred works of Matteo Thun, Martine Bedin and Nathalie du Pasquier, whose wild 1981 fabric pattern designs are shown here. Long live the avant-garde!
