Wharton Esherick (1887-1970) was a painter, designer, and builder among other things. He distinguished himself from other oddly named artists, such as Hamish Fulton, by way of his organic, wholistic approach. Though he became commercially successful as an artist and designer, what really defines him is his studio. His home evolved from a place to work to become his entire investment.
Burn Baby, Burn, Design Inferno!
We've been awfully preachy lately, and it occurred to us that we hadn't given you a pure jolt of visual design karma in a while. Sure, function gets overlooked a lot, and we love championing insightful, socially power design. But we also want you to look good doing it. They say that no fashion ever dies; They just skip a generation. At the rate fashion changes these days, it seems more like they skip a year or two. With that in mind we thought you might be able to use a look back at that decadent decade, the 1970s!!!
