Richard Herre

Germany (1885)

The Stuttgart-based archi­tect, inte­rior designer, graphic artist, author and trans­la­tor Richard Herre has only recently been redis­cov­ered as an impor­tant repre­sen­ta­tive of the New Objec­tiv­ity of the 1920s. As a graphic designer, Richard Herre created the famous motif for the Werk­bund exhi­bi­tion Die Form” in 1924. For inte­ri­ors, he designed not only furni­ture and light­ing, but also textiles such as curtain fabrics and carpets, creat­ing holis­ti­cally designed spaces of engag­ing strin­gency and surprising colourfulness.

With the reed­i­tion of designs like the Stuttgart chair and the Zet kilim by Richard Herre, an almost forgot­ten, multi-layered chapter of modernism can be experienced again.
