ABOUT Wharton Esherick

1887-1970, 

États-Unis

Wharton Esherick is an American designer known as the father of the American Craft Studio movement: they refuse industrial production, then in vogue, and prefer the hand-work to sublimate the wood. He had an intuitive approach and he challenged some traditional forms of furniture. He launched a new momentum, then followed by a small group of designers, such as Sam Maloof (1916-2009), Phillip Lloyd Powell (1919-2008) and George Nakashima (1905-1990).
