The first episode in the series on collecting design is available now to view online for the first time. It is posted on the webpage of the program Collecting Design, which I teach at the New York School of Interior Design. With experts, colleagues, and friends I have explored the territory of collecting furniture by Frank Lloyd Wright, the most influential American architect of all time. With his seminal ideas and over a thousand architectural works, FLW revolutionized the domestic interior and helped defining the modern home. To Frank Lloyd Wright, furniture was an integral part of his architecture, and his pieces have been collected by museums and passionate collectors worldwide for decades. I want to thank those who have made this film possible. To Cassina, for the sponsorship; to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation; to Dr. Ellen Fisher and Samantha Hoover at the New York School of Interior Design who were willing to make this film available to the public; and to Loris Pignoletti who crafted and produced the film. I want to thank the speakers: Craig Miller, former curator of the American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Professor Virginia Terry Boyd from University of Wisconsin Madison; Adriana Friedman, Director of Delorenzo Gallery; Nancy McClelland from McClelland-Rachen; Daniel Wolfe; and Michael Jefferson from Wright. And last, but least to the program's sponsors: to Sarah Harrelson from Cultured Magazine for her constant support and to Rabih Hage from DeTnk for allowing everyone taking the program an access to the remarkable annual report of the design market that he creates.
