Bauhaus + Betsy

Two short pieces in New York Magazine this week, both on topics close to my heart.

The first, “We All Live in a Bauhaus,” is about the continuing influence of the Bauhaus (and Eero Saarinen) on contemporary product design — even in mysterious places. Exhibitions at the MoMA and the Museum of the City of New York open next week. Don’t Josef Albers’s nesting tables still look great?

The second, “Original Gossip Girls,” is my small tribute to Maud Hart Lovelace’s Betsy-Tacy books: the high school and young married novels have just been reissued in paperback.
