Knoll Textiles, 1945-2010, an upcoming exhibition at the Bard Graduate Center, promises to call some much deserved attention to the often neglected field of textile design. The show (and catalogue, yay!) will focus on Knoll's contribution to the interior design world through its fabrics and highlight the work of the company's designers, many of them women.
If you're in NYC this show seems like a great opportunity to see some classic textile and product design up close and in context. Three cheers for institutions like the BGC for giving decorative arts and design history its due.
