Memphis introduced new materials and coverings (plastic laminates)

The movement could be said to have removed barriers – designing for fun.

The movement significantly transformed the colours used in products.
The movement seriously questioned the ideas of what were acceptable designs.

Memphis made design humorous and injected fun into everyday products.

Memphis transformed  interior products - lighting, ceramic ware, furniture, etc.
