This exhibition features works by Josef and Anni Albers designed for the modern domestic interior, dating from the 1920s through the 1950s. The objects in the exhibition include Josef's glass and metal table-top objects and Anni's textiles for space dividers and rugs, as well as some never-before-seen domestic objects designed by both. As artists, designers, and teachers, this extraordinary couple shared an intense design philosophy that would ultimately have an indelible impact on future generations of designers and architects.
