that was then

this is now.  interface flor was a hit at neocon 2010 promoting their "memphis under foot" collection, inspired by the 1980's art and design movement of the memphis group.  i have been seeing the trend creeping back into design style for awhile now but have been avoiding acknowledging it.  i have despised this style of design for years.  i hate primary colors and building block shapes.  credit is given to the memphis group's ettore sottsass for challenging traditional ideas of "good taste" by using bright colors and bold patterns.  interface flor created a blast from the past in their chicago showroom and even played music videos from la roux, including the very memphis "bulletproof."  interface flor and la roux are making memphis grow on me.
