Modern Magazine hosts the "Midcentury American Home" lecture is the fourth part out of a five-series lecture from Daniela Ohad Smith, Ph.D.
The postwar suburban projects, the Case Study House Program, furniture production and promotions, are at the center of discussion of the American midcentury home. It is contextualized within postwar modern design and the work of such key figures as the Eameses, Eero Saarinen, Knoll, George Nelson, Robin and Lucienne Day, and Eva Zeisel.
Breakfast reception to immediately follow at Knoll Luxe, Suite 1702.
This five-session program examines the history of the 20th-century interior through the filter of the major designmovements that came to shape the modern home. While more than just a collection of objects, the discussion highlights key concepts of the development of the modern interior, such as taste, class, style, identity, hygiene, and modernity. By viewing icons and some of the most important interiors of their time, all components are considered: furniture, furnishings, lighting, objects, wall coverings, and the decorative arts of the interior.
