Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textile for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the 1960s. Maharam is recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design as a leading provider of textiles to architects and interior designers. Maharam embraces a range of disciplines, from product, graphic, and digital design to art and architecture. Long-term collaborations with Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, and Paul Smith, among others, foster an open dialogue across varied design disciplines. Maharam’s spaces are unified in both appearance and spirit. The Maharam Design Studio governs the research, engineering, design, and development of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Balancing an appreciation of history with innovative interdisciplinary exploration, the studio focuses on four main themes: utility, technology, tradition, and luxury which results in really distinctive fabrics.
