Heimat Brooches and Holder Brooches And Holder, 2004

This is a brooches and holder. It was designed by Iris Eichenberg. It is dated 2004 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is metal, thread skeins, cardboard (box). It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

With Eichenberg’s brooches from the Heimat series (roughly translated as Home or Homeland) one enters a very personal world where thread and other components, presented in a sewing box-like container, are suggestive of warmth and healing.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
