This avant-garde design collective challenged the prevailing modernist aesthetic with its bold use of color, pattern, and unconventional forms. Sottsass's designs for Memphis, including furniture, ceramics, and household objects, became iconic symbols of postmodern design. Throughout his career, Sottsass collaborated with numerous companies and brands, leaving a significant mark on industrial design.
