Farnsworth House Ceramic Mug


About the Design

Completed in 1951, the Farnsworth House is an extraordinary steel and glass house designed by german-american architect Mies van der Rohe in Plano, Illinois. It’s minimal design follow Mies’s famous dictum “less is more” and creates a sense of calmness and piece to the observer.

Recognized even before it was built, a model of the Farnsworth House was exhibited at the MoMA museum in 1947, where Philip Johnson commented, comparing it to his own Glass House, that “The Farnsworth house with its continuous glass walls is an even simpler interpretation of an idea. Here the purity of the cage is undisturbed.”.

Regardless of his peers words of admiration, Mies had to face a lot of criticism for this house, from Dr. Farnsworth suing him to the House Beautiful magazine publishing that the Farnsworth house was a “Threat to the New America.”.

Today the Farnsworth House is one of the most iconic residential buildings ever built.
