Nathalie Du Pasquier Corkboard Dinner Placemat

A set of two corkboard dinner placemats designed by celebrated artist and founding member of the Memphis Group, Nathalie Du Pasquier.

Each set of two placemats features one individual design.

Throughout the 1980s the acclaimed Memphis Group changed the face of design using uncoventional materials, historic forms, kitsch motifs and gaudy colours. Launched at the 1981 Salone del Mobile, Milan, their unconventional approach to architecture, furniture design and art challenged trends of the time and resulted in what was coined as the "New International Style". Nathalie Du Pasquier was one of the founding members of the group and from their outset her playful textile designs formed a key component of their work; they helped to define not only the aesthetic of the Memphis-Milano Movement, but also the quintessential post-modern aesthetic of the decade.
