Behind the Scenes at the Silver Studio: Rex Silver and the Hidden Mechanisms of Interwar Textile Design

Behind the Scenes at the Silver Studio: Rex Silver and the Hidden Mechanisms of Interwar Textile... AbstractThe Silver Studio produced designs for mass-market wallpapers and textiles between 1880 and c.1960. This paper draws on evidence from the Silver Studio Collection (now at the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture, Middlesex University, London), to propose that Silver Studio designs in the interwar period were never the work of one individual but rather were the product of complex negotiations between clients and designers, mediated by Rex Silver. The Studio’s diaries and other records provide an insight into these negotiations and raise questions about the nature of “authorship” in design. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
