Gilbert Rohde, Vanity and Ottoman, 1934. Made by Herman Miller Furniture Company, USA. Yale University Art Gallery
Hollywood film actresses made vanities a glamorous 1930s furniture form. This example was introduced at the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair in the House of Tomorrow. The vanity unites the late 1920s Bauhaus experiments in tubular steel with the panache of high-style French furniture.
Some of the best ‘curated’ design content from around the world. Content curation is the process of gathering information relevant to a particular topic or area of interest (Wikipedia). Content curation is not a new notion, museums and galleries curate items for collections and display. The Top 40 music countdown identifies and selects songs. The content that I select is identified and shared by myself.
I have my preferences and tastes, however, I would like to think that my choices are eclectic and expose the viewer to the multitude of international and modern design.
