Compilation : Memphis

Memphis Milano flickr (© www.memphis-milano.org)
I wanted to make this compilation inspired by the Memphis group months ago, the file on my desktop was filled with links and images, but it just never happened, the timing was not right I guess and then time passed by (oh so poetical) and... . But with the presentation of So Sottsass at Darkroom in London (and again : oooooww bummer I won't to see this for real..) and thanks to Sight Unseen (one of my favourite websites E.V.E.R, one of the few who's text I actually read and not only scroll through the images) as the greatest prophet of the whole Memphis revival since years, it eventually had to happen. And yes I'm absolutely a groupie of the Memphis group, who would have something against more colour and a return of 80's funky fun?
