Добавить в корзину
Having graduated at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the American textile designer and weaver Jack Lenor Larsen founded his own textile-design company in 1953. Today the Larsen name is synonymous with excellent woven fabrics which epitomize the point where modernism, craft and technology intersect. Larsen is also an accomplished gardener and garden designer, a traveller, a patron of younger artists, and an avid collector and supporter of traditional and contemporary crafts from around the world. In this illustrated memoir, Larsen reflects on his life and career, recalling in wry detail his clients and collaborators, who include architects Edward Larrabee Barnes, Louis Kahn and I.M. Pei. The illustrations depict Larsen's fabrics, his commissions, homes and collections, and his friends, clients and mentors.
