Focus on felt.

An exhibit just opened at the Cooper-Hewitt in New York that celebrates felt. Yes, felt. “Fashioning Felt” follows the evolution of this surprisingly versatile material. Tracing its origins, the exhibit covers the history of the material, up through its contemporary uses (like Tord Boontje’s Little Field of Flowers, above). The exhibit will be on view through September 7, 2009.
