MarCo Zannini was a founding member of the Memphis movement. The Memphis Movement was an Italian architecture and Design Group founded by Ettore Sottsass. The group was active from 1981-1987. The Memphis Milano style bears bold colors, geometric and asymmetrical shapes, the Postmodern child of Art Deco and Pop Art. It started at a meeting called Memphis, named after a Bob Dylan song that was played repeatedly during the reunion that gathered architects and designers and was organized by Ettore Sottsass at his place. From that point, Memphis presented their work for the first time at the prestigious Salone del Mobile of Milan in 1981 where it burst into an immediate success, extreme like their creations. The Memphis style being so extreme, in 1985 Ettore Sottsass left the group, which would eventually disband in 1988. As extreme it was and as criticized it has been, the Memphis movement changed the face of design and architecture but not only--it is now a cultural icon that still influences strongly fashion, graphic design or even music. The Memphis heroes continued with their own practices to spread and evolve the ethos of that wonderful parenthesis in time and creation.
