Inspired By: Case Study Houses

29 Nov

Case Study #22, Pierre Koenig, 1959-1960

Case Study houses have been on our “if I win Lotto” wish list for a long, long time. The 8 original Case Study houses were built as cost-effective housing for soldiers returning to California from WWII and showcase the work of some of the most influential architects of the Mid-Century Modern era. Others were built after that period as well, and all feature the same spare economy of line, the strong play of the horizontal and the vertical and the airy, hyper-modern minimalism that pretty much sums up late 1950’s product design. We love this idea as it applies to fashion- where a stripped-down vibe can let the construction and the geometrics of a piece take center stage.
