Reproduction, Circular Staircase at Holthanger, Surrey
Dorn designed floor coverings and textiles that responded to their architectural surroundings. At Claridge’s Hotel, her circular carpet’s directional lines helped visitors navigate the hexagonal lobby. Dorn’s fringed fabric Lodore enclosed the circular staircase of an estate in Surrey by noteworthy architect Oliver Hill. Against the home’s spare and smooth white walls, the textile added textural contrast.
