Women to Know in Design Part Two
- Just before the new year, architect and theorist Anne Tyng died at the age of 91 at her home in Marin County, California.
- Our fifth installment of women to know in design focuses on the up-and-coming designers you need to know now, and five years from now. Check out Part One, Two, Three, and Four here.
Among her many innovations, Florence Knoll introduced padded and tufted upholstered chair seats without armrests, so that space flowed effortlessly around them, and custom-colored curtains to compensate for the unnatural quality of the new fluorescent lights. In this lecture, Christine Gorby will explore how Florence Knoll reconceptualized the use of textiles as integral architectural elements within the modern interior and in the context of dynamic social and technological changes.
Christine Gorby is an architect and associate professor of architecture, Pennsylvania State University, College of Arts and Architecture.
