Behold, a few choice slides from the David Hicks project I presented at school yesterday. Do forgive me if more Hicksonian inspired posts find their way over to Buhl Blvd. in coming days, as, previously, David Hicks only took up a little space in my design history periphery, but now, he's front and center. His New York Times obit summed it up quite nicely: "Mr. Hicks's heady combination of bold antiques and modern furniture set off by abstract paintings, often best deployed within an envelope of cool Georgian architecture, was the last word among movers and shakers of the 1960's." Honestly. What an icon. I have to tell you too, the latest opus chronicling his life and work - David Hicks: A Life of Design, by Ashley Hicks - was an essential resource for me and something I think anyone with even a fleeting interest in design should keep on his or her shelf. At the least, go page through it at Barnes & Noble later - you'll be hard-pressed not to walk out inspired!
