About Memphis: Memphis was
founded in 1981 by architect Ettore Sottsass
and a group of young Milanese architects and
designers. The playful colors, materials and
motifs of the furniture,
ceramics and glassware was unveiled by
memphis designers at the 1981
milan furniture fair. Memphis split the design
world and caused a media
sensation after years of drab rationalism.
Memphis Milano became the radical design
movement that achieved iconic status.
Now part of museum collections world wide.
