If you like original and colourful prints, you'll love the Memphis style. Have you heard of it? It's a combination full of geometric shapes and patterns inspired by 80s' aesthetics.

Memphis style in interior design

The intention was to establish the foundations of contemporary design and break with the classic, boring and sober norms that have always dominated with pieces that symbolise just the opposite: dare, break the rules and design with no set boundaries.

It was officially presented in 1981 at the Milan Furniture Fair and, since then, it has never ceased to amaze.

You'll have heard a thousand times that "less is more", but that's not the absolute truth: the Memphis style proves that "more is more" and advocating eccentricity can take interior design to a new level full of personality and design in abundance.

How to apply the Memphis style to your home

  1. Colours everywhere

Keep grey and earth tones locked away. It's time to create your own rainbow at home. Forget fear and logic, the more colours you can put together, the better!

2. The power of geometry

Mix lines, curves, shapes… The rule is: there are no rules.

3. Memphis and graphic design

Prints play a leading role, always with a childlike and eighties' aesthetic that believes in the symmetry of the asymmetrical. The challenge is to express oneself to create a unique design full of personality.

4. Originality in the everyday

We often forget that design is everywhere. Dare to personalise every detail of your rooms and you'll win.
