Memphis: Research, Experiences, Results, Failures, and Successes of New Design
By Barbara Radice.
“And now there’s also a book, a nice, big book.” So begins this extraordinary, perfect tome. 208 glorious pages of the works of the Italian Design group, Memphis – packed full of crazy patterns, furniture, objects, interiors, plans and drawings. How can we explain how covetable this book is? “This nice, big book exists and will go out into the world, and students may not be able to buy it because it’ll cost a lot, but they’ll find it somewhere and they’ll be able to look at it somehow, and those who can afford it will put it on the table and it’ll stay there for a while.” Amen, Ettore Sottsass!
