Richard Gluckman Silk Scarf 13" x 5' in Size
"The design of the scarf incorporates some of the ideas we have been working on in our work; transformation, transparency , and symbol. The light bar could be seen as an architectural form or an absence of form."
Richard Gluckman's designs have been acclaimed for the sensitivity to both the integrity of existing architecture and the particular needs of modern and contemporary art. A major component of his practice has been the design of art-related facilities, including the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh and Site Santa Fe in New Mexico.

Richard Gluckman Silk Scarf 13" x 5' in size
Designer: Richard Gluckman
The design of the scarf incorporates some of the ideas we have been working on in our work; transformation, transparency , and symbol. The light bar could be seen as an architectural form or an absence of form.
The Absence Scarf designed by Architect Richard Gluckman of Gluckman-Mayner Architects. Absence measures 13" (inches) wide by 5' (feet) long. It starts at one end with a very light bluish white color and gradually transforms to a blue color. While at the same time, a white stripe begins in the blue section and gradually changes to a blue strip at the end of the white section. Gluckman's design process (architecture and otherwise) comes from - and is influenced by - his collaborations with minimalist artists. As an architect of museums and galleries, he designs spaces that are least obtrusive to the artwork, revealing the strengths of the building and concealing its weaker points.
He has been called the "invisible designer" by New Yorker Magazine, a high compliment, in terms of designing to allow the space and what goes on in and around it to complete the experience. Thus, the beauty/strength of the design is enhanced or realized upon its use.
We though "Absence" was appropriate for his method of revealing what is easily to be missed.
The Absence Scarf is made of 100% silk and can liven upattire, add a pop of color to a coat or simply accessorize a beautiful outfit. The Absence Scarf makes a wonderful accessory to our blue dial watches such a the Ladies Witherspoon or go "all Gluckman" with his unisex Spare Watch!
