In 1897, Klimt joined with a younger generation of artists in creating the Vienna Secession, a group whose artistic mission was to renew society. The efforts of this group led to the development of a Viennese version of Art Nouveau.

CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH - 1868-1928 holds a special place in the history of architecture and design. He is best known as the architect of the Glasgow School of Art, the Willow Team Rooms, and Hill House - all masterpieces of visual symbolism, historic reference, poetic intensity, and pure geometry.One of Mackintosh's fundamental beliefs was that art, architecture, and the crafts were one creative whole. His buildings are inseparable from what they contain, every element, however minute, is considered in relation to the whole.
MARGARET MACDONALD - 1865 - 1933 provided the decorative arts to Charles' buildings. The result is a unique vocabulary of design and decoration that can only be described as "Mackintosh". Our Charles Rennie Mackintosh necktie collection is intended as a tribute to this prophetic team whose influence continues to grow. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of these ties goes to assist the con00servation and education programs of the Hunterian Museum & Art Gallery, University of Glasgow.

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT - 1867-1959 is recognized as the 20th century's greatest architect. His buildings as well as his other commissions represent some of the world's most important architectural and design treasures. During his more than 70-year career, Wright created nearly 800 works, including his famous Prairie houses, Usonian buildings, offices and resorts, churches and temples, and finally, an art museum. In his art, Frank Lloyd Wright transformed the materials of nature into forms and spaces idealized by the human mind - creating things nearly divine. Born of the intimate beauty of Wright's decorative details, the Frank Lloyd Wright® Neckwear Collections seek to convey Wright's monumental vision of the human spirit. These Frank Lloyd Wright® Collection products are authorized by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Taliesin West, Scottsdale, Arizona. A portion of the sales of these ties supports the conservation and education programs of the foundation. There are so many beautiful Frank Lloyd Wright Neckties that he has his own page.
SANTIAGO CALATRAVA - 1951 in Valencia, Spain. As both an architect and an engineer, Calatrava easily identifies with both disciplines. He often creates innovative works that depend on a firm grasp of both the creative and structural aspects of design. His skills as an engineer allow him to create sculptural surfaces and unusual spaces.

In 2001, a landmark building was completed. The Milwaukee Art Museum addition, the first US building designed by Spanish-born architect, Santiago Calatrava opened to the public. The centerpiece of this creation is a 90-foot high transparent gathering place enclosed by a light-controlling sunscreen, the brise soleil. It can be raised or lowered creating a dramatic sculpture, which the architect likened to a bird in flight. A portion of the sales of these ties supports the education programs of the Milwaukee Art Museum .

 

Brise Soleil = Large Aerofoil Fins that allow a significant level of natural daylight into the building whilst reducing solar gain. Additionally, the wide spacing allows good outward visibility with less clutter to the sight line. Furthermore, they fit in well with the concept of natural ventilation, and provide excellent control of the internal environment if controlled automatically or linked to the Building Management System.

The Story Behind the Sale

A tie by any other name - Help me collect the word for silk and necktie in many languages. I would also love to be able to say hello and and thank you! Any corrections would be appreciated: cravat (French), cravate, tail, neck tie, slips (Norway), ensfarvet silkeslips, Syvfoldede slips (Danish), The Italian word for "tie" is "cravatta" ("cravatte" for the plural), soie, stropdas, stropda (Netherlands), Seiden krawatte, silkki, solmio, silke slips, sioda, kravato (Dutch), corbata (Spanish), solmio, carbhat, gravata, dasi (Indonesia), tselk gapstuk (Russian) krevat, krawat (Poland), gravata (Portugal), binder, kurbata (Tagalog), croata, ca vat, kpabatka.... from a customer..."stropda (Netherlands)" and "kravato (Dutch)" are wrong, it is both "stropdas". "Silk necktie" in Dutch is "zijden stropdas", Czech language it is: "kravata" or less common also "vázanka". Silk is "hedvábí", silk tie is "hedvábná kravata". I also know Slovenian (ex-Yugoslavia country) words "kravata", silk is "svila", together it is "svilena kravata". It works also in Croatian. In Hawaiian, "Thank you" is "Mahalo", "You are welcome" is "He mea 'ole", silk is "kilika" and necktie (the closest match) is "lei 'a'i". Gary: The German word for necktie is Die Krawatte. However, during my trips to Germany, I have learned that the alternative word is the one that is most frequently used: Der Schlips. Plural is Die Schlipse.
