Nathalie du Pasquier

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

As part of the Memphis collective (led by Ettore Sottsass), Nathalie du Pasquier designed surfaces – textiles and carpets – plus furniture and objects that have the synonymous visual patois of the early 1980s and that famous group of designers. Her motifs, repeated indeterminably and in whatever colour she saw fit was a welcome antidote to the day’s “good taste.” In retrospect, her patterns are still pleasingly, happily irreverent while also sitting quite nicely into a fashionably late embracing of all things post-modern.
