by Aaron Britt The roster of furniture designers who have graced the factories of Knoll is startling: Saarinen, Platner, Bertoia, Breuer. But the textile designers like Marianne Strengell, Evelyn Hill Anselevicius, and Eszter Haraszty so responsible for the warp and weft of mid-century modernism get shorter shrift. Knoll Textiles: 1945-2010, due out August 31st from Yale University Press in association with the Bard Graduate Center, hopes to rectify this. At over 400 pages, this volume accompanies the exhibit of the same name that ran at Bard this summer. Knoll Textiles is edited by Earl Martin with essays from design curators and critics like Paul Makovsky of Metropolis and Bobbye Tigerman of LACMA. My colleague Miyoko Ohtake did a great slideshow and interview with Makovsky in May. Now fans of the exhibit from which the book was taken can get the whole story.
