Giorgio di Sant'Angelo

Giorgio di Sant'Angelo (1933-1989), originally an architect and industrial designer, currently has a retrospective at the Phoenix Art Museum. I know no one can go to see it, but I feel his work is pertinent to the work we are doing. Here are a couple articles about the designer, as well as the exhibition.

Sant’ Angelo was known to say,
“I am not a fashion designer but an artist who works in fashion—an engineer of color and form.” His wide reach across design areas reflected his myriad of talents and viewpoint of fashion as a total lifestyle. He was among the first designers to encompass elements in home furnishings and environmental fragrances which are now industry standards. - Phoenix Art Museum
