CASA LUIS BARRAGAN Sottsass Associati Konstantin Grcic Industrial Design Studio Edward van Vliet CRÉA: Stephen Burks durable -En Frank Stella Frank Stella (born May 12, 1936) is an American painter and printmaker, noted for his work in the areas of minimalism and post-painterly abstraction. Stella continues to live and work in New York. Biography Stella was born in Malden, Massachusetts, to parents of Italian descent. After attending high school at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, he attended Princeton University, where he majored in history and met Darby Bannard and Michael Fried. Work Late 1950s and early 1960s Upon moving to New York City, he reacted against the expressive use of paint by most painters of the abstract expressionist movement, instead finding himself drawn towards the "flatter" surfaces of Barnett Newman's work and the "target" paintings of Jasper Johns. From 1960 Stella began to produce paintings in aluminum and copper paint which, in their presentation of regular lines of color separated by pinstripes, are similar to his black paintings. Late 1960s and early 1970s
Marc Newson Ltd Harry Bertoia Furniture | Harry Bertoia - Italian-born artist, sculptor, and modern furniture designer In the 1950s when most chairs were made of rigid wood, the Bertoia line of furniture - with welded wire and a springy feel - were totally innovative. Knoll International produced the first Bertoia chairs in 1952 and is still producing them today. Bertoia was exposed to chairs at Cranbrook when Eero Saarinen and Charles Eames entered and won the Organic Furniture Design Competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. Bertoia, frustrated by the lack of recognition, left Eames and was summoned to join the Point Loma Naval Electronics Laboratory. When former Cranbrook classmate Florence Schust Knoll invited Bertoia to work with her and her husband Hans in Pennsylvania, Bertoia was tempted but indecisive. They first intended for Bertoia to develop hospital furniture, but he preferred to work with healthy bodies. Furniture is available through www.knoll.com.
