Spaces: Todd Selby visits George Lois: New York

. Thursday, September 2, 2010

Photographer Todd Selby visits the home of the legendary graphic communicator George Lois. Lois' New York apartment is home to an impressively curated collection of 20th Century design reflecting his love of form, ranging from Art Nouveau, to Bauhaus, to Mid-Century Modernism. Lyrical works by Loos, Wagner, and Guimard; sit alongside iconic molded plywood pieces by Eames and Aalto, and austere works by Prouve, Perriand, and Mies.

"What do you love about furniture?

I love to look at great chairs (but rarely sit in them). Some of the greatest sculpture ever created were created by Mies and Guimard.
