March 25, 2020
Pratone—a stand-out work in the exhibition Radical: Italian Design 1965–1985, The Dennis Freedman Collection—draws upon nature, Pop Art, and innovative functionality, culminating in an inviting patch of foam grass that was designed for people to fall into.
Award-winning designer Laura Umansky, the Houston-based founder of Laura U Interior Design, talks 1970s design in the video “Big Meadow.”
