Michael Graves is an influential architect and designer. He studied at Harvard University and taught at Princeton University while designing private houses in the abstract and austere style of orthodox Modernism. However, in the late 1970's he rejected this Modernist expression and began seeking a larger, Post-modernist vocabulary. The hulking masses of the Portland Building and the Humana Building both display his highly personal, Cubist new rendering of such Classical elements as colonnades and loggias. Though sometimes considered somewhat awkward, these and his later buildings, such as the Indianapolis Art Center, have been acclaimed for their ironic interpretation of traditional forms. It is this sensibility that has projected Graves to a star among designers, as can be seen in his many designs for Alessi that clearly depict a "new Americana," such as the best selling 9093 Kettle.

I was surprised to find these items of M. Graves--I have several items this collection, and needed a tray of this style/size, for the sugar and creamer. I am glad to find them and your price is right on this--and my friends all enjoy with my coffee, thanks!
