Memphis Block Wallpaper by Stuart Rodgers

Memphis Block Wallpaper by Stuart Rodgers

Memphis is an homage to the prolific design group that deeply influenced the postmodern 1980's. Supercharged pastels meet bright saturated colour in this bold update of the pink and green pairing so typical in the eighties. Art deco Miami, such an influence of the time, has been given a colour boost in this vivid nod to contemporary design.

This wallpaper is part of 'Unseen Futures' collection, which draws from the late 20th century and a love of all things post-modern. Colourways begin in the Mid Century with Suburban, Modern and Moonlight, travel through to the 1970’s with Orange, Twilight and Sky and arrive firmly in the 1980’s with Memphis, Carnival and Urban.

An imperfect isometric grid forms the structure of this pattern family. The Block motif offers an undisturbed rhythm of pattern with the illusion of depth. Fault has a folded motif in every repeat, a nod the occasion graphic stutter behind 1980’s virtual host Max Headroom. Fault and Block repeat seamlessly into each other should the folded motif be too frequent.

Palm rejects the formality of the grid with a layered foliage motif to preserve the idea of depth. A rich and lush pattern, Palm is an interpretation of the houseplants of the 1970’s. Palm Fault creates the bridge between the two grid motifs with the great contrast between informal foliage and rigid graphic repeat being its strength. Both designs with the Palm motif work beautifully on their own or a bold stripe can be created with alternate drops of Palm and Palm Fault.
