Pricing: price does not include VAT Masanori Umeda was born in Kanagawa – Tokyo in 1941. He obtained a diploma at Tokyo’s Kuwasawa Design School in 1962. He moved to Milan in 1967, where he worked for Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni. In 1981 Umeda designed his most famous work for Memphis: the Tawaraya boxing Ring, where all the founders designers are shown together in one of the most iconic images of Memphis Group. He returned to Japan in 1986, where opened his studio and continued to design postmodern, poetic and ironic furnitures. His works are exhibited in many museums throughout the world. Memphis is the great cultural phenomenon of the 1980s that revolutionized creative and commercial logics in design. Born from the idea of Ettore Sottsass and a group of young designers and architects, in Milan, coupled in the years by famous designers from the international scene, Memphis turned upside down all of the existing parameters on living. Ettore Sottsass as the backbone of the group, design gained a new concept and expression through new shapes, materials and patterns, expanding the creative limits of the industry. Memphis became a symbol of New Design. Its influence is still clear in various sectors of production and beyond.
