More About This Title Henry van de Velde. Interior Design and Decorative Arts


Understanding his role as apostle of an all-encompassing creativity, Henry van de Velde dedicated himself increasingly to the design of furniture and decorative items—a field in which he had been more active since the late 1890s, working for manufacturers in Krefeld and in Chemnitz. Alongside this appeared designs for knotted and woven carpets as well as for simpler coverings for the entire floor. Exploring new territory, this catalog of Henry van de Velde’s textile works researches in depth the numerous designs that have been preserved in the museums of Zurich, Krefeld, Brussels, Chemnitz, and Ghent.
