Prominent Designer Featured In New Work From Mohawk

Press release from the issuing company

[Cohoes, NY] – She is inspired by the things that exist freely in our daily lives: the quality of light, the colors of nature and the harmony of perfect proportion and symmetry. Barbara Barry’s creations, whether the design of a beautiful room or an elegant lamp, defy simple categorization. Her work is as simple as it is refined, and as peaceful as it is powerful. Barry is among the world’s most prominent and talented designers. And now, her story unfolds in an exquisite new book just released by Mohawk Paper Mills. Barbara Barry on Options, invites the viewer into Barry’s world, where design is an ongoing dialogue of color, line, form and texture. Her philosophy — that we are all nourished by serene, beautiful surroundings — is demonstrated in this piece via lush photography as well as Barry’s own watercolors, sketches and renderings. “Barry’s work is timeless yet very contemporary — and she succeeds in so many different disciplines,” says Mohawk’s VP of Marketing Communications, Laura Shore. “We felt that her work was perfectly aligned with the spirit we envisioned for the new Mohawk Options line.” This 48-page, perfect bound book was printed on new Mohawk Options. “Options is an Inxwell paper that opens up so many design possibilities with eight shades of white, virgin and recycled options, and smooth and vellum finishes,” continues Shore. Premium uncoated Options papers are carefully crafted with Mohawk’s proprietary Inxwell process, to offer exceptional ink holdout and opacity for precise reproduction of images. Barbara Barry on Options is the first in a series of profiles from Mohawk on “true originals” — visual explorations that get inside the creative choices of great designers and thinkers, from inspiration to implementation. The book was designed by VSA Partners, Inc., a strategic design and creative branding consultancy with an international reputation for creative excellence.
