#AdamŠtěch’s latest piece for #MaharamStories chronicles a tour of Japanese hotels designed by architect #TogoMurano in the 70s and early 80s beginning with the Grand Price Hotel New Takawana in Tokyo (pictured here)—a massive hotel complex “composed of circular buildings woven together by open garden passageways […] and hundreds of small lace balconies.” Defying categorization, Murano’s distinctive output combined traditional Japanese design with the experimental influences of #modernism #brutalism, and #organicarchitecture. @okoloweb writes: “Miracles can happen in #architecture. I am lucky to have experienced more than one through the fascinating buildings of Togo Murano.” Read more in bio link. Photography by #AdamŠtěch.

#HellaJongerius. Screenprint from the design process for #MaharamTextile Fruit by @hellajongerius, 2015. Driven by a desire to capture the irregularity found in nature, Jongerius began with a graphic study of imperfectly round “fruit” transformed through overlays of various textures and opacities. These motifs were then translated to a jacquard-woven textile using cotton, nylon and post-consumer recycled yarns to render their individualized and softly blended forms.

As a radical departure from the aesthetics of corporate airlines, #AlexanderGirard’s complete visual overhaul of #Braniff Airlines in 1965 involved equal attention to both small and larger decorative details, as was typical of Girard’s approach. Through a profusion of color and pattern conveyed in 17,000 original designs including 56 textiles, furniture, stationery, silverware, and glassware, #Girard created a cohesive visual experience and one of the defining projects of his prolific career. Maharam is proud to support the exhibition Serious Play: Design in #Midcentury America, which opens tomorrow @milwaukeeart featuring a complete recreation of Girard’s Braniff International airport lounge including a selection of original Girard textiles reissued in close partnership with @girardstudio as part of Maharam’s #Textilesofthe20thCentury series including Checker, Lanalux and Superweave. ✈️🌟#MaharamTextiles

@claudyjongstra believes that “each fleece and in everything that comes out of the studio” is bound with the “tacit knowledge of the landscape with its multitude of biotopes” that belongs to her expert shepherd, Ko, (pictured here), along with the knowhow possessed by her 250 rare, indigenous #DrentheHeath sheep “as stewards of their habitat.” A Dutch textile artist and environmental advocate, Jongstra has worked since 1994 to master the age-old technique of handmaking felt—humankind’s earliest textile—rendering her work a modern manifestation of material culture. “Introducing people to the textured story of this material revitalizes an ancient connection with tactile sensibilities,” she writes, “and with the earth. At this precarious moment, as the loss of human connection to these sensibilities puts earth’s delicate balance in jeopardy, we have an opportunity to draw attention to material as our vital link to a new way of seeing our environment.” Read her full essay for #MaharamStories at link in bio and join us during #ClimateWeekNYC for the US premiere of #WOVENSKIN—a nomadic installation that explores ecology, color, and community—at @ado now through Monday, 9.24 and at @StoneBarns 9.27-9.30. 🌱#MaharamCollaborator #ClaudyJongstra
