Memphis Group

Memphis Design in Play by David Gaston

The passing of David Bowie has had me re-thinking the work of the often maligned design work of Memphis Group.  Bowie was a great collector of this often garish and frequently uncomfortable design.  Can these bright colors and bold graphics have a lasting place for playground or site furniture?  Lately we have seen a resurgence of Ocean Teal on the playground.  

Pink / orange / blue / black / white ... what's next?
