American designer Irving Harper (1916–2015) is known for designing the iconic Marshmallow Sofa and the logo for Herman Miller while working for George Nelson Associates, Inc (below). Harper, who was born in NYC and graduated from Cooper Union participated in some of the most important moments in the history of American industrial design. When working as a draftsman for the Gilbert Rohde's office during the 1930s, he was responsible for the creation of the milestone Plexiglas furniture, and when at Raymond Loewy’s office, he did the interiors in the company's department store division. When he died earlier this year, it was discovered that during the late years of his life, Harper was engaged with creating hundreds of paper sculptures at his home in Rye, New York. These sculptures, which will be exposed and shown to the public for the first time next month, will be auctioned by Wright Chicago, in what I consider as a great opportunity to acquire a piece from the unknown chapter of a design icon.
