Irving Harper was the director of design at George Nelson Associates in the 1960s and is known for designing the Marshmallow Sofa for Herman Miller. He was also an artist working in paper. His work is showcased in Irving Harper Works in Paper.
Encompassing influences as diverse as Picasso, Egyptian hieroglyphs, the art of Oceana and Africa, the architecture of Paris, and the American beech tree that shades the Rye, New York home he has lived in for over 50 years, the artist’s private meditations reveal an informed aesthetic consciousness expressing itself as pure joy. Harper’s private work delivers on the promise of modernism: humble materials elevated by brilliant design and craftsmanship, and integrating the natural world to create objects in a universally understood language.
