Michael Graves was at NeoCon 12 to sign limited edition posters and introduce his Voyages Collection. “CF Stinson has given me the opportunity to provide a fresh and new approach to patterns on surface materials for seating. By blending literal and abstract concepts, I want to encourage the impression of familiarity and also allow them to be seen in a slightly different way.” Mr. Grave’s interview and more examples of his work will soon be appearing in DesignApplause.

Inspired by Graves’ love of travel and the exploration of distant places, the Voyages Collection features six distinct patterns and is specifically designed for environments that require durable and cleanable surfaces.
