Modern Furniture Conservation:
Form and Material Challenges

Introduced by Earl Martin
Thursday, June 23
6 to 8 pm
(lecture and reception) 

In this lecture, Margo Delidow and Roger Griffith explore the history of materials and techniques associated with mid-century modern furniture, particularly those used in Knoll production from the 1940s to the 1970s. Focusing on five chairs that they treated specifically for the BGC exhibition, they will consider the evolution of modern upholstery techniques and discuss how particular innovations and actual use complicate the conservation and restoration of these works.
