A lamp by Martine Bedin - Memphis Flyer

I hate the way she licks stamps. I hate her furniture. ," says Danny DeVito in the 1986 film Ruthless People. The "she" in question is DeVito's wife (Bette Midler in some serious shoulder pads), and her hated furniture is selections from the 1980s Italian collection known as "Memphis. " DeVito does his best throughout the film to do away with his wife, but without luck. The furniture apparently stuck around too: Through July 13th, you can see samples from the design line at the Dixon Gallery & Gardens as a part of the exhibition "Memphis/Milano: 1980s Italian Design. The "Memphis" collection, which debuted in 1980 at a prestigious Italian furniture fair, was the brainchild of a small group of European and Californian designers, including the father of postmodern interiors, Ettore Sottsass. "Memphis" bears only a casual relationship to its namesake. The designers decided on the name after a late-night brainstorming session set to the tune of Bob Dylan's "Stuck in Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again. " The resultant turquoise nightstands and cow-print chairs that make up the "Memphis" brand are about as Memphian as the "Florence Sofa Bed" from Furnituremaxx is Italian. It is truly taste-making stuff, meaning you either love it, as Karl Lagerfeld does, or, like DeVito's character, you can't stand it. Critic Nancy Adams perhaps summed it up best in a 1983 review of the collection when she wrote: "It's not boring. " Thirty years later, the plastic laminate neon tables and chairs are still not boring, though inevitably a bit kitsch. Peter Shire's surfing-inspired overstuffed red armchair (supported, on one side, by a beachball-esque orb) is displayed alongside Sottsass' Casablanca , a totemic, cheetah print cabinet. Another Sottsass, Carlton , is a plastic-laminated mix between bookshelf and cabinetry. Sottsass called it a room divider. There are several pieces by designer Martine Bedin that are some crazy mix between French provincial patterning, diner architecture, and children's toys. Nothing is minimal and everything is glossy. This furniture is not intended for the antique confines of the Dixon. This furniture is intended for lofts in sunny, excessive places like Miami, Milan, or SoCal. It is probably something like your own furniture collection, but on uppers and with more liberal sexual politics. The designers who created the "Memphis" line wanted their work to be fun (read: not beige),. Source: www.memphisflyer.com
