Design Inspiration

This is a bold and fun sculpture using ‘Memphis Design’ as inspiration. The Memphis Group (actually based in Milan) were groundbreaking in their use of clashing colours and haphazard geometrics and were unafraid of ideas that disregarded what was considered ‘good taste’. Born in the 80s and gaining popularity in the 90s, the design style is very much of Elmer’s time. It was loud, proud and stood out from the crowd, and, for that reason, captures the essence of the Elmer character.
