Since creating his iconic music stand in the late 30s, Wharton Esherick established a tradition, and the music stand became the touchstone of the American Studio Movement. The folding music stand that my friend John Scofield created is so graceful and elegant that it is not surprising it was selected for the show "Music and Design," at MoMA, curated by Juliet Kinchin and Luke Baker. The exhibition comes to explore the affinity between design and music in the light of aesthetics of rhythm, harmony, interaction, and improvisation. It showcases the work of such masters as Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Lilly Reich, Saul Bass, Jørn Utzon, and Daniel Libeskind, who have known for push the boundaries of their design work in tandem with the music of their time. John designed his music stand as a student at the School for American Craftsmen as the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1971 and it has since become classic of studio furniture.
