About

Here you are shown the EU wired, Buenos Aires floor lamp with printed aluminum base, orientable pipes in painted aluminum, and shade in porcelain, designed in 1986, by Aldo Cibic. Aldo Cibic was born in Vicenza, Italy in 1955. In 1977, he started to work with Ettore Sottsass, becoming his partner in 1980, the following year marked the creation of Memphis, of which Cibic was one of the founders. In 1989, he founded his own studio and at the same time he started to collaborate with various Universities, in particular, Domus Academy, Politecnico di Milano, IUAV of Venice. He is an Honorary Professor at Tongji University of Shanghai. Based in Milan, operating internationally, he focuses on urban, architecture and interior projects, he has focused his research recently on the continuously evolving investigation into the nature and design of interactive living in the modern world. Memphis Milano is the great cultural phenomenon of the 1980s that revolutionized creative and commercial logics in design. Born from the idea of Ettore Sottsass and a group of young designers and architects, in Milan, coupled in the years by famous designers from the international scene, Memphis turned upside down all of the existing parameters on living. Ettore Sottsass as the backbone of the group, design gained a new concept and expression through new shapes, materials and patterns, expanding the creative limits of the industry. Memphis became a symbol of new design. Its influence is still clear in various sectors of production and beyond.
