Fashion Max Bill Geelong Blanket x Hauser & Wirth
Art to cosy up with. The Geelong Blanket by Max Bill is part of Hauser & Wirth’s Artist Blanket series: an annual collaboration between the gallery’s artists and ROAM, a small studio based at the heart of the Scottish cashmere and fine woollens industry. As a student of the Bauhaus where he was taught by the likes of Josef Albers and Wassily Kandinsky, Bill pioneered a new visual language of geometric abstraction that would define the conventions of twentieth-century Swiss design. For decades since, Bill’s creations have lit up the world – now they’re warming us up too.
