Modern art pioneer Anni Albers was driven by her need to create and explore. She delighted in the possibility that “art is everywhere,” whether hung in a museum or occupying a place at the table. Anni’s distinctive and playful geometric patterns are both mesmerizing and uplifting. Made of durable melamine, this set of mini bowls is part of Fab’s collaboration with The Albers Foundation, designed to delight at the dining table. The pattern is based on the Triangulated Intaglio series of prints that Anni created during the 1970s.
Includes 6 bowls. Measurements correspond to each bowl.
Artistic pioneer Anni Albers was surrounded by rules and she defied all of them. Born in Berlin in 1899 to an affluent family, she eschewed the comforts of her upbringing for art school, entering the Bauhaus where she studied weaving and met husband, Josef Albers. The Alberses emigrated the U.S. in 1933, where their work continued to be driven by inexhaustible experimentation with color and technique. In 1949 Anni became the first textile artist to have a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. She turned to printmaking in the 1970s and her patterns were realized in a new medium that captured her strong graphic sensibility.
