This cupboard, its strong geometric shape and bold, striped laminated exterior inspired by the work of Ettore Sottsass's pop art contemporaries, was a precursor to the radical output of the design collective Memphis, founded by Sottsass in 1981. Memphis's use of decorative plastic laminates, eye-catching color, and totem-like forms owed much to these early experimental designs for Italian furniture maker Poltronova.
