Anni Albers ‘E’ Fabric Cushion
This fabric was designed by Anni Albers and has recently been produced by Christopher Farr Cloth in various colourways. This colour version is called natural. The ground fabric is 100% linen and as with all fabrics produced by Christopher Farr is exceptional quality.
Albers was the subject of a recent blockbuster show at Tate Modern and is widely feted as one of the twentieth century’s most important textile artists.
The cushion is backed on the reverse side with a green fleck fabric which is cotton, has a zip closure and contains a duck feather filled cushion pad.
Anni Albers was a German-born American and was one of the stand out figures of the Bauhaus movement, where as a student the weaving workshop was the only one available to women. When Gunta Stölzl left the department Anni took over the role of Head of the Weaving Workshop. Anni and her husband Josef fled to the USA in 1933 following the closure of the second iteration of the Bauhaus caused by pressure from the Nazi party.
