Paesaggio Scarf  Michael Graves Design

"Paesaggio" (which means landscape in Italian) is a silk version of a Graves mural called "Industrial Landscape," created as part of his series of paintings and drawings exploring the theme of the Archaic Landscape. These evocative compositions include assemblages of simple geometric building forms placed within fictional landscapes that are reminiscent of the designer's beloved Tuscany.

While studying architecture in Rome in the 60s, Michael Graves fell in love.  In love with the color, architecture and landscapes that this wondrous country beheld.  All of Graves' architecture has been influenced by his experience.  But, in nowhere else other than the Paesaggio Scarf has it been expressed so literally.  Gazing at the scarf his iconic design style is everywhere from the structures themselves, the greenery and landscape and the post modern feel throughout.  A picture does tell a thousand stories.

Paesaggio Scarf Michael Graves Design measures 13" wide and 60" long and is made entirely of silk.  Paesaggio can liven up attire, add a pop of color to a coat or simply accessorize a beautiful outfit. The Paesaggio Scarf makes a wonderful accessory to our Michael Graves' blue dial watches such a the Ladies Witherspoon or unisex watches.

If modern and contemporary is your style, go with a look from Projects Scarfs.  Also, be sure to check out The Absence Scarf designed by Richard Gluckman.  At this price, why not liven up your wardrobe with both!

Michael Graves

Few are credited with spearheading a single design movement; Michael Graves, well known throughout the world for design excellence, led three. In the 1980s, Michael redirected the architectural conversation away from abstract modernism toward a more humanistic approach to architecture and urban planning, that among other things, brought color and art back into the experience of architecture. In the 1990s, his partnership with Target defined America's expectation that great design should be available to everyone. And design became a corporate strategy. Over his past decade, Michael became a passionate advocate for the disabled and used the power of design to improve healthcare experiences for patients, families and clinicians. Michael Graves transformed the role of the architect in society and left the world a better place than he found it. Michael Graves received prestigious awards including the AlA Gold Medal, the National Medal of Arts from President Clinton, The Richard H. Driehaus Prize, and the Topaz Medallion for Excellence in Architectural Education.
