TOTEMISM: Memphis Meets Africa at Design Indaba Expo

Kinship in design is often viewed as simply a matter of showing relations, both formally and historically, between objects that share color, pattern, and local craft strategies. Totemism, however, often takes a "system of belief" one step further by introducing supernatural connections and avant-garde expressions that blend the folkloric and iconic in stirring ways. In this spirit, we reached out to Li Edelkoort, world-renowned trend forecaster, to describe some of the layered creations in her artfully curated exhibit,'TOTEMISM: Memphis meets Africa' at this past weekend's Design Indaba Expo. The Memphis movement burst onto the scene in 1981 when its designers made waves at the Milan Furniture Fair with irreverently bold, Pop-style designs that challenged Modernist notions of good taste and functionality. Created as a language that challenged the aesthetic of clean lines, the market appeal of the understated, and the usefulness of design coherence, Memphis rippled out to ceramics, glassware, furniture, interior design, and urban architecture, specifically building facades. The movement embraced the unexpected in design as well as the ubiquitous in life.

Wood House Dining Room

In the Auckland, New Zealand, house architect Michal O'Sullivan designed for a family of four, natural materials and neutral tones come together to create an inviting interior. The wood ceiling is inspired by a traditional Maori cloak and is meant to be a metaphor for keeping the family warm and protected. A floor made from terra-cotta tiles mirrors the pattern above. An onyx island adds a white contrast to the golden interior. O'Sullivan designed the dining table and the occasional table is by B&B Italia. The side chairs are replica Jean Prouve design, the vase is by Kamaka Pottery, and the wine rack in the built-in shelf is similar to one by Winehive. See more of the modern wood home here.
