LUNA Textiles Case Study Collection NeoCon 2019

During the mid-century, the LA based Arts & Architecture magazine sponsored a ground-breaking series called the Case Study House Program, which urged architects to design and build homes that would explore the advantages of modern residential living, while promoting the economical construction concepts of prefabrication and mass production. From 1945 to 1966, thirty-seven projects were proposed and twenty-five were constructed in the Los Angeles area.

Espousing values of technology, utility and producibility, emphasis was placed on “new materials and new techniques” in house construction, and required that “each house be capable of duplication and in no sense, be of individual performance.” Architects involved included Charles Eames, Richard Neutra, and Pierre Koenig.

For NeoCon 2019, Luna drew inspiration from this iconic series, and applied the theme to its latest collection of textiles, asking the question, “What is a modern texture?”
