Although most often associated with painting, Camille Graeser
was a versatile artist that worked in a variety of fields, including interior
design, product design and graphic arts. He was one of an increasing number of
prominent artists who worked to create functional designs for the home and for
Graeser enjoyed a number of successes throughout the 1920s.
Particular among these was a commission to design the interior of a model home
in the Weisenhoff village, part of the Association of German factories near
Stuttgart. It was here that Graeser demonstrated his nascent inclination toward
a geometric constructivist aesthetic.
By his mid-40s, Camille Graeser had turned his attention
almost exclusively to painting. Nevertheless, Graeser left us some remarkable
textile designs in the form of the Rhombus fabrics. Dating from 1944, the design
consists of rhomboid shapes over a colorful background.
One of the colors in this Camille Graeser design is Rhombus:
Document. The rhomboid shapes are black over a tangerine background.
