Memphis Collection Shiro Kuramata for Memphis Milano, Kyoto table, no. 106, 1983

Executed by Memphis, Milan between 1983-1989, this table is an early example from the Memphis archive. During the 1980s the ‘Kyoto’ table production involved more elaborate handwork using a greater density, quantity and variation of coloured glass inlay compared to the later examples.

In the 1980s, the Memphis collection revolutionised the creative and commercial logic of the design world. The company was founded on the initiative of Ettore Sottsass and a group of young Milanese architects and designers and was later joined by some of the most famous names on the internatinal design scene.

Auction FIVE: Post-War & Contemporary Art including Design will take place on 29th November at Westergasfabriek, Transformatorhuis.. Viewing will take place from 24th-28th November.
