The Memphis Movement
The Memphis Movement is a famous design movement that began in the 1980s and is one of the internationally recognized representatives of postmodern design trends.
From the 1950s to the 1970s, minimalist and modernist structure and line styles were very well established. But Memphis thinking focused on "radical, funny and barbaric" and ignored the so-called "good taste" considerations of the time.
Memphis rebelled against inherent design concepts, focusing on decoration, individuality and the humanistic ideas of design, completely abandoning the colorless geometric shapes and functionalist Art Deco style. The pop art color and kitsch visual art of the 1950s inspired them. Unusual aesthetics.
