Michael Graves’ legendary wit is ever-present in his designs for products as well as in the architectural details of his buildings.
A play on scale and composition keeps his classical ideas fresh and lively.
The power and energy of these designs is derived from graphic simplicity combined with the artful application of a high-contrast color palette. Many of Graves’ buildings and product designs exhibit the same sensibilities of movement and activity when viewed in three dimensions.
Humble building materials inspire this collection from brick and stone to tile and glass – the tools of the architect and builder. It is no surprise that Graves’ patterns pay homage to these materials by employing them in two-dimensional gridded compositions in a color palette that is reminiscent of natural materials.
