Based on a woven silk necktie featured in his Spring/Summer 2017 menswear collection, Dots juxtaposes a miniature houndstooth with a bold polka dot rendered in lustrous mercerized cotton, yielding material contrast and a deep sense of overlaid space. This distinctly playful yet understated design underscores Smith’s and the Eameses’ shared penchant for practical, adaptable designs infused with an undeniable sense of curiosity and fun. The Moulded Plastic Chair’s single-shell form, (originally manufactured in fibreglass in 1950), epitomizes the Eames tenet, “the best for the most for the least.”
In collaboration since 2002, Paul Smith and Maharam have generated a vibrant range of textiles that translate traditional suiting concepts to interiors: reinterpreting quintessential apparel motifs like houndstooth, plaid, polka dots, and stripes through idiosyncratic combinations of colour. Now the two entities are partnering on an exclusive assortment of iconic pieces from the Herman Miller Collection that give new meaning to Smith’s “classics with a twist” approach. Launching at Herman Miller’s Tokyo flagship store on October 1 2020, an exhibit will showcase this concise selection of midcentury designs reimagined by Smith in alternately tailored, whimsical, and artful textiles.
