April Lunch & Learn: Modern Textiles in America—The Early Years

Description

Modern Textiles in America—The Early Years

Speaker: Ryanne Sanderson, NCIDQ, Sales Representative, KnollTextiles

This CEU explores the development of post-war modern textiles in the US. It begins with the discussion of two design schools—Cranbrook in America and the Bauhaus in Germany and studies the development of a new modern design language. The presentation investigates mid-century textile designers and the design directors from various companies. The modern textile movement reflected a turn away from the conventional weaves of the post-war period to simpler textures, cleaner colors and more geometric patterns. Modern textiles to suit modern furniture of the times.

Lunch & learn programs include a CEU presentation, networking time, and a light lunch.
