Regular price$400.00 Sale price
Set of four Memphis glasses, each adorned with a unique, abstract design by Nathalie du Pasquier for Ritzenhoff. They feature a distinctive style characterized by bold colors and geometric patterns. The central theme appears to be a stylized representation of cows in a pasture, with blue skies and red flowing shapes that may suggest clouds or perhaps sunsets. The colors are vibrant, with a predominance of blues, reds, yellows, and black shapes that could represent the cows. Each glass also has vertical elements in yellow. The bottom of the glasses features a wavy pattern, which adds to the playful, dynamic design.

NATHALIE DU PASQUIER is a painter and designer. She was born in Bordeaux, France in 1957 and has lived in Milan since 1979 where she met the designer George Sowden. Two years after moving to Milan, she met Ettore Sottsass who invited her and Sowden to become founding members of the Memphis Group. Her iconic patterns for Memphis are today the group's most recognizable designs. They have become a widely recognized aspect of the Memphis brand and defined the esthetic of the 1980s in general.
In 1987, she dedicated herself to painting after designing furniture and objects. Over the past 10 years her fine art career has had strong recognition and her iconic Memphis work has been re-edited by brands like American Apparel and the Conran Shop, entering the lives of new generations and showing how relevant her early work is today.
