Irving Harper: Works in Paper
Irving Harper is an iconic yet surprisingly not very well known midcentury design legend responsible for the marshmallow sofa, ball clock and various Herman Miller textile designs to name a few. What apparently was even less known was that he has created over 300 extensive and unique sculptures varying in materials ranging from toothpicks to paper that are only now being displayed in this book. In addition to the varied commercial and artistic creations, the authors have documented his home which also promises to delight any modern design lover. Available here.
