La Collezione Memphis alle Stelline
The Stelline Refettorio, a sixty meters long Gallery, where in the ‘600 the orphans of San Carlo Borromeo used to dine, will offer the space at the most extended museum exhibition of Memphis design ever performed in Milan, city where the last case of against-design of the XX century has born, in 1981, Set up on the longitudinal axis of the Gallery, the object of the Memphis trend protagonists will march like unclear, playful and ironic characters of a season characterized by positivism and by a narcissistic lack of scruples.
Post Modern style icons and, of the stratified and contradictory language of the ’80, these objects stands out for their showy love for the quote, for the semantic editing and for the combination of industrial materials on very high standard of Italian handicraft. The exhibition opens with an optical and sensorial tribute to the “evanescent decade”, with laser-graphic tossed in the Gallery sky,
surprise visit of the protagonists and a special sound effect carpet.
On the occasion 1classe will present a travelling bag realized in collaboration with Nathalie Du Pasquier.
