I had a telephone conversation with Irving Harper who is 90 years old and one of the minds behind some of the great modern designs of the 20th century . He worked with George Nelson during (In my opinion) the greatest period of American design . He was very nice and invited us for a visit I was very nervous and probably rambled a lot. Vivienne and I have decided to go . We are planning to go in September on the train . It is very rare you get the opportunity to meet such a great designer and I probably wont get the chance again.
