Matteo Thun

 

Many designers contributed ceramic designs to the Memphis collections, but Thun was perhaps the most successful and prolific. His works often draw on organic imagery, suggesting birds in flight or exotic plants. Often they have elegant, elongated forms that are not all that easy to use, implying that they should be understood as refined and possibly even as ritualistic objects. Still in the early stages of his career when he joined Memphis, Thun was destined to be one of its most successful alumna. His firm today produces a wide range of architecture, interiors, lighting and produce design, collaborating with many of Italy’s top manufacturers.
