Multifarious PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Multifarious free pdf Like the art of Maya Romanoff, this book is awash in colors, surprises, and new ideas that will open the readers' eyes to the possibilities of interior spaces. It charts the rise and showcases the work of the man once known as Multifarious Maya, who burst onto the American design scene as a wunderkind in the 1960s when he took his quirky obsession with hand-dyeing fabric and created a line of high-fashion clothes. "Fast Company" magazine dubbed him "the man who made tie-dye hip for non-hippies." Then he switched to embellishing entire rooms to create spectacular spaces--walls, ceilings, and floors--never before imagined. Space is his grand canvas. Like British designer William Morris more than a century before, Romanoff believes in the value of handcrafted art. He works with artisans all over the world to create one-of-a-kind designs. Fittingly, each book is wrapped in handmade paper made in Romanoff's Chicago factory.
