Anni Albers was an artist and designer with an intellectual and serious approach. She worked primarily in textile and industrial design.
Her books, On Designing (which i currently have on hand) and On Weaving, offer her whole view on design and provide a greater meaning of craft.
She also made very clever, household-object jewelry. These Anni Albers kits where put out by Urban Outfitters a while ago.
the last piece of jewelry…of washers and fabric tape, inspired my DIY for Chalkboard Magazine a while back.
You can see more of Anni and her partner (artist) Josef Albers’ work at their exhaustive foundation website here. I couldn’t resist sharing some pictures of the young and old lovebirds.
