Martine Bedin b. 1957

Martine Bedin’s designs are best known for their colorful, kitschy, and expressive attributes. The Bordeaux born designer first studied architecture in Paris before moving to Florence in 1978 where she was introduced to members of the Radical Architecture movement including the founders of Superstudio, Studio Alchimia, and Archizoom Associati. After an introduction to Ettore Sottsass and sharing her bold designs, she became a founding member of the Italian design collaborative Memphis Group in 1981. The Super Lamp and Terminus Lamp, produced in the same year, became two of her most iconic designs. Her work has been included in major exhibitions at institutions such as the Centre Pompidou and included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Today, Bedin lives and works in Paris as an architect, industrial designer, and professor.
