Overview


"First renowned as a supplier of theatrical textiles to Broadway and beyond, Maharam pioneered the concept of engineered textiles for interior applications in the sixties, and is the world's leading provider of textiles to commercial architects and interior designers. Maharam takes a holistic view of design, embracing a range of disciplines including architecture and interiors, furniture, fashion, accessories, graphic and digital media. The Maharam Design Studio oversees the cultivation of an extensive textile collection, ranging from re-editions of enduring designs by the twentieth century's most noted visionaries to textile-based collaborations with industry outsiders including Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, Maira Kalman, Bruce Mau, Jasper Morrison, Nike and Paul Smith, among others. The publication provides a comprehensive overview of the company's history, cultural markers and design projects. Abstracted product applications are featured through ""Useless Objects,"" a collaboration with Jasper Morrison.

Editorial Reviews

Steven Heller
The photos are shot and lighted in such a tactile way you will want to caress each piece of fabric…the text here probably offers more inside details than even the most devoted design fan would want. But that does not interfere with the fundamental content: the visuals. Anyone who has ever appreciated Maharam's workmanship will savor this outstanding eyeful while marveling at the range of functional and experimental designs, in that span from classic modern to mid­century modern to postmodern. There are scores of irresistible patterns, and a few shockers too.
