On the occasion of Salone del Mobile 2018, Post Design Gallery and Memphis present Materialism, an exhibition with works by Nathalie Du Pasquier and George Sowden.

In a world of diminishing ideology, where industrial production has covered the whole planet with objects, our consciousness is increasingly influenced by merchandise: we are what we are, because of the things that we make.

Materialism is an exhibition of furniture, ceramics, carpets and drawings by Nathalie Du Pasquier and George Sowden. As founder members, they took their place in the first Memphis exhibition, Milano, in September 1981. They participated in all the subsequent exhibitions until the group stopped working together, at the end of 1986.

Since then, Nathalie has been working as an artist and George Sowden involved in his design studio, developing industrial products. Both of them have continued a personal interest in working with craft and small industrial organisations, of which this exhibition is a consequence.
