Illustration: Lauren Rolwing imagines life in Ettore Sottsass’ neighbourhood

Illustrator Lauren Rolwing, who made these brilliant illustrations of the key outfits at fashion week, has just completed a new project and it’s a joyous celebration of Memphis design in the truest sense. Lauren reimagines what the world would look like if Ettore Sottsass lived in her neighbourhood, and it’s fair to say it would look pretty fantastic. School uniforms are royally jazzed up, birds can spot glow-in-the-dark worms from a mile off even in the dead of night, and houses are transformed into cubist, blocky affairs showing off Lauren’s penchant for geometry as well as Sottsass’ signature style. Come do our place, Lauren? Go on.
