New York Design Agenda brings you today… retrospectives: they are all about revivals, journeys and paths that guide us into the glorious pasts and creations of people. In this case we are talking about Jack Lenor Larsen: an interior designer who gave enigmatic symmetries and colorful splashes to interior environments and houses.
Larsen was an artist and his journey through design was clear: he wants to erase the boundaries between high and low craft. The heterogeneity of his collections is the reflex of this vision of the union of the crafts. Original textiles and commissions will be exposed and the corridors of the exhibit are the signature of a 40-year career. Bamboo stalks will frame his textiles and the garden will give the wild pattern to his fabrics.
Covering many armoires, furniture, sofas and so on, Larsen was a master of the colors, the untamable patterns and the showy productions. His textile company was his own glory and the hero was himself. The New York School of Interior Design will celebrate these achievements with a retrospective of the designer, from September 19th to December 5th.
