This striking colored pencil set from legendary architect Michael Graves's firm contains twenty-four colored pencils in his richly sophisticated palette. The textured box has a lift-off lid and pulls out of a glossy die-cut sleeve showcasing a perfect grid of squares---a subtle nod to the designerís penchant for designing windows in a grid. A folded enclosure features an inspiring essay on the use of color in the design process. Both minimal and elegant, the set reflects Gravesís aesthetic and the architects and designers who will savor it as a gift and use it in their work.


Michael Graves (1934ñ2015), pioneering architect and product designer famous for the Portland Building and the Alessi "Whistling Bird" Teakettle, was widely admired for his mastery of color.
