A book celebrating the centenary of Tibor Reich, a pioneering post-war textile designer, who brought modernity into British textiles and ceramics.
Reich was born in Budapest and studied architecture and textiles in Vienna before moving to Britain in 1937. In 1946 Reich set up Tibor Ltd, introducing bright new colours and textures into the drab interiors of post-war Britain.
Fully illustrated, the book’s 10 chapters explore Tibor’s creative milieu and include detailed studies tracing his early years in pre-war Vienna to the avant-garde home he designed in the 1950s.
The launch of the book Tibor Reich: Art of Colour & Texture coincides with the major retrospective of Tibor’s work on display until August 2016 at Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
Margaret Howell is the exclusive London stockist until 04 April 2016, following the official launch held at the Wigmore Street shop.
