Two Matters of Importance


Two articles in the May issue of Dwell magazine have special resonance for Cooper-Hewitt’s followers. The first, “Printed Matter” by Aaron Britt, concerns the life and work of the Swiss-born graphic designer Herbert Matter; the second, “20th-Century Fox” by Leslie Williamson, discusses the collaboration of Eero Saarinen, Alexander Girard, and Dan Kiley on the seminal J. Irwin Miller house in Columbus, IN.
