Asolutely stunning and possibly unique screen or room divider made by known designer or manufacturer. It’s made in a style similar to designs by Alessandro Mendini. The divider brings the lively vibe of the 80s with its four disco dancing figures. It is of great quality. The divider is painted in cool blue and sea blue colours with a high gloss finish, which makes it look even better. When you’re not using it, you can easily fold it up and put it away. This piece is a perfect example of the Memphis period, known for its unique and bold designs.
Memphis Design, born in the early 1980s in Milan, challenged design norms with its fearless mix of styles. Led by the legendary Ettore Sottsass, this style made waves with its vivid colours, clashing patterns, and daring approach. While polarizing, Memphis Design is now a muse for modern designers in various fields. Ettore Sottsass and his team launched Memphis Design in 1980 with 55 pieces that defied conventions.
Their rule-breaking style became famous worldwide, influenced by pop culture, Art Deco, Pop Art, and mid-century aesthetics. Memphis Design brought unexpected, playful, and idealistic creations to the world, challenging the era’s functionalism mantra. It inspired popular TV shows, garnered celebrity fans like Karl Lagerfeld and David Bowie, but faded in the late ’80s. Now, it’s experiencing a resurgence, influencing fashion, interior design, and more. The name “Memphis” comes from a Bob Dylan song that played during the collective’s first meeting.
