    NYSID’s “Mid-Century Maestro: Textiles of Boris Kroll”

    This fall, the New York School of Interior Design will present a long-awaited look at the revolutionary work of Boris Kroll with its retrospective “Mid-Century Maestro.” Founded in the 1930s, the Kroll mill made its name incorporating eye-popping color into upholstery fabrics. Kroll also invented a trademark jacquard weave with multiple types of textured yarns, and established the use of the jacquard loom to create large-scale tapestries for public spaces, often in stunning, geometric designs.

    “As we began to comb through the archives to prepare for this exhibition,” says Steven Stolman, president of Scalamandré, which bought the Kroll archives in 1991, “we could hardly contain ourselves. Frozen in time, this extraordinary archive literally jumped from out of its boxes as if to say ‘We're back!’” The exhibition, which includes more than 80 textiles along with photography and documentary materials, will be on view at the NYSID Gallery, 161 East 69th street, from October 2 through December 7, 2013.
