The architect and designer's dream gift neatly nestled in a keepsake box with die-cut sleeves. This custom set from one of the most celebrated architects of the 20th century, Michael Graves, makes for a distinctive surprise. Combine this with Fantastic Cities and you're all set.
Note the textured box, with a lid that slides to reveal a glossy die-cut sleeve. Inside, a perfect grid of squares sends a subtle nod to the designer's penchant for designing windows in a grid. A folded enclosure features an inspiring essay on the use of color in the design process. All in the details.
Inspiration: Michael Graves (1934–2015), pioneering architect and product designer famous for the Portland Building and the Alessi "Whistling Bird" Teakettle, was widely admired for his mastery of color.
