We all know Martine Bedin’s Super lamp. Behind this deserved success there is a significant production that does not enjoy the same recognition. Charlotte, also edited by Memphis, has remained relatively little known, perhaps overshadowed by the ubiquitous work of Ettore Sottsass,. It is however one of the finest pieces of furniture by the brand at that time, made by the best cabinetmakers. A sort of huge jewellery box, Charlotte is described in the Memphis 1987 catalogue as like a bar/cabinet. The question is where do you put the alcohol and liqueur? Charlotte is in fact a piece of furniture that serves little purpose. A piece of furniture/sculpture whose presence suffices in itself and on which objects, books, documents and photographs are placed that we are unsure what to do with and that are yet so essential to our interiors.
