Taking place during New York Design Week 2019 at the Herman Miller Showroom in Manhattan, Drawings Upon Framework will present the designer’s initial responses to our latest workshop - American Modernism, a Midwest Tour. Having explored the birthplace of American Modernism during a 5 day intensive workshop, visiting sites such as Cranbrook Academy of Art, Herman Miller headquarters and archives, as well as various iconic modernist architectures, the team deduced that the idea of framework was central to the root of modernism. Exploring this idea individually, Drawings Upon Framework will present a series of works on paper that translate the beginnings of this new phase of investigation.
