The Fabric of Modernity
Sonia Delaunay’s work appears today as fresh and relevant as ever. The modernist pioneer’s ingenious color patterns dissolved the boundaries between visual and applied art. She further developed her painterly experiments in fashion, fabric patterns, interior design, book and object art, merging geometric abstraction and the sculptural qualities of pure color. Maison Sonia Delaunay is dedicated to Sonia Delaunay as a mediator between artistic-philosophical design and the beauty of everyday life. It particularly focuses on new research into textiles, fashion, and interior design. Drawing on never-before-published sources, the publication examines her international collaborations with entrepreneurs and artists, and illuminates how she redefines the relationship between art and industry in the process to design for a visionary, modern life.

SONIA DELAUNAY (1885, Odessa-1979, Paris) was trained in St. Petersburg, Karlsruhe and Paris around 1900, and initially established herself as a portrait painter before dedicating her work to abstraction around 1913. With her husband Robert Delaunay, she experimented with the concept of “Simultané” based on the use of intense color contrasts. During a stay in Portugal and Spain in World War I, she expanded her art to the objects of life. Back in Paris in the 1920s, she combined her ambitions in painting and design with her fashion and furnishing house “Sonia Delaunay”. Her influence continues to this day, her patterns being as modern as ever.
