The Enduring Impact of Mid-Century Design

December 3, 2012

The AIANY Interiors Committee and Knoll Studio will host a discussion with noted antiques expert Judith Miller about her recently published book, Mid-Century Modern: Living with Mid-Century Modern Design. Joining her are Benjamin Prado of Knoll, MoMA curatorial assistant Aidan O’Connor, and design journalist Terry Trucco. Mid-Century Modern explores the careers and influence of groundbreaking designers including Charles and Ray Eames, Alvar Aalto, Robin and Lucienne Day, Georg Jensen, Arne Jacobsen and others. Key design pieces, including a number of previously unpublished examples, are placed in historical context with coverage of innovations in design, production methods and materials. A cocktail reception will precede the talk.
