George J. Sowden  



George Sowden studied architecture

at Gloucester College of Art

in Cheltenham, England.

In the 1960s he moved to Milan

and in 1970 began collaborating,

as a consultant, with Olivetti, the renowned Italian manufacturer of office machinery, computers and office furniture.

This long relationship with Olivetti

lasted 20 years.

In the 1970s, Sowden also worked

at the heart of the Italian,

radical design movement which enabled him, in 1981, to become a founding member

of Memphis, an avant-garde movement

that defined the post-modern movement.

In the same year (1981) he founded

his own studio, Sowden Design.

The studio is still running and works

in various design fields worldwide.
