|"Design for a Wall Decoration"|
by Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Pitt’s new passion was not born overnight. “I’ve been doodling ideas for buildings and furniture since the early 1990s, when I first discovered [Charles Rennie] Mackintosh and Frank Lloyd Wright,” said Pitt in a recent interview with Architectural Digest magazine. “Actually, I found Wright in college [at the University of Missouri], when looking for a lazy two-point credit to get out of French. It forever changed my life”. Much of Pitt’s designs center around the idea of a continuous line, such as the long angled line under his dining room tables. Pitt describes it this way, “I can’t wholly articulate it, but it started with my introduction to Mackintosh’s Glasgow rose, which is drawn with one continuous line. But for me there is something more grand at play, as if you could tell the story of one’s life with a single line—from birth to death, with all the bloody triumphs and perceived humiliating losses, even boredoms, along the way”.
