fabric friday: 5-13-11: knoll exhibition

"Knoll Textiles, 1945 — 2010" exhibition opens at Bard Graduate Center on May 18, 2011. The project focuses on the progression of KnollTextiles and was featured on New York Times blog - T. check out the full article here.

the goal of the project is to shift focus - people may know they have an amazing designer chair, but plan to reupholster their chair because they do not realize that the fabric is just as iconic as the furniture itself.

many fabrics were originally experimental, so often times they were discontinued with only a few years of production.

in random fabric friday news: there's a chance we may be going to Neocon this year. if that happens, i hope to get awesome pics of fabric vendor showrooms to share for fabric friday posts!
