From the mid-1950s until the end of his life in December 2017, Chermayeff practiced as a graphic designer, in New York with his partner Tom Geismar. He produced collages and assemblages for over forty years, utilizing the everyday ephemera collected in different parts of the world where he had worked and traveled. He saved the envelopes received from friends and colleagues, who sent him abandoned gloves, discarded candy wrappers and other visual delights to add to those he had picked up on the streets of the world. His collages have been exhibited and published in the United States, Europe and Japan. This catalogue brings together nearly 100 works of the artist between 1998-2005.
