Travels: Tibor Reich at The Whitworth

We recently took a trip to Manchester's Whitworth for the retrospective of post-war textile designer, Tibor Reich. The Whitworth is an amazing space (with a great shop!) and this exhibition is beautifully curated and packed full of inspiration. 

Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1916, Reich studied architecture and textiles in Vienna before moving to Britain in 1937. In 1946 he set up Tibor Ltd, introducing bright new colours and textures into the drab interiors of post-war Britain.

The exhibition explores the ideas behind his innovative textiles, photography, ceramics and drawings, and is an exciting mix of vintage film, full drops of wallpaper, sample books, snapshots of interiors and layers of amazing fabrics.

Join our photo tour, or even better get yourself to Manchester and take a look for yourself.

Tibor Reich runs at The Whitworth until August 2016. To find out more click here.
