Memphis design

The Memphis movement, born in the 80’s, was synonymous with shapes, graphics and colours that ooze flamboyancy and quirkiness. And this old-school design is making a modern return in 2019.

After some notable appearances in recent art exhibitions, as well as a distinct grace across fashion catwalks, Memphis style has inspired the next wave of home interior. It welcomes the shift from structured and neat lines, to focus on soft curves and inviting patterns across enveloping frames.
