“Memphis is like punk rock. It is like Kurt Cobain. Provoking. On the other side there are Eames and Nelson, whose design is the total opposite. They are the creators of pieces that remind us of the calming, serene notes of the Beatles or Philip Glass. So full of hope.”

– Erwan Bouroullec quoted by Phaidon
