Surveying innovative recent works by prominent international designers whose stylistic orientations variously reflect and diverge from the design strategies developed in the 1980s by the renowned Milan-based Memphis group, this catalogue showcases an eclectic array of more than 300 chairs, tables, lamps and other domestic furnishings produced by Ron Arad, Philippe Starck, Borek Sipek and ten other designers and firms. Excellent reproductions of the exhibited works and individual critical essays on the featured artists are prefaced by a discussion of the concepts informing the designs of the Memphis group and the new approaches to style and function being explored by designers of the 1990s.
