    Louis Comfort Tiffany’s eclectic sense of design incorporated the styles of the Arts and Crafts, Aesthetic, and Art Nouveau movements (Johnson 8). He had an eye for ornamentation in which he transformed every piece in a room into a humanly functional work of art (Johnson 27). Light and color were strong for forces in the design of his spaces to create a sense of exoticism and romance (Johnson 33). Though his designs were lavish, he strived to make his spaces livable and enjoyable by the user, not just museum-like rooms that marveled wealth or status (Johnson 28). He grew inspiration from the artistic values of other cultures giving him a fascinating image of design where he sought to create harmony by integrating these principles with aspects of nature in order to make striking yet livable interiors.…

    Robert Frost: Design

    • 1385 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Written by Robert Frost, “Design” is a deeply philosophical poem that understands something too big to be understood by taking a small piece and understanding it and linking it to the universe at large, answers many of the largest questions that surround the universe while recognizing those questions may potentially be unanswerable, addresses the Argument from Design and the belief in a creator, describes the two concepts of Design, which can be metaphorically categorized both as an “engineering” term describing a rational plan for the universe or an “artistic” term describing an irrational plan for the universe, and the conflict of ambiguity. Robert Frost acknowledges the issues of human freedom, the purpose of God’s creation, and the meaning of life in his poem “Design”, and attempts to seek the truth of its being. As a premise of the poem, Frost takes a microcosm to understand and use to find what God's plan is about. The poem recognizes the Argument from Design and the existence of a creator, learning about him through his creation. “Design” uncovers two concepts, one of which implies a rational plan for the universe. That is, a universe that gives answers, and implies a sense of order, purpose, and meaning to the universe. The second concept proposes an irrational plan for the universe, which is a universe open to interpretation, and implies a sense of creativity, chance, randomness, and meaninglessness to the universe. The problem of ambiguity begins and ends the poem, which suggests frustration and anger because an answer is vague or uncertain. Frost uses the concept of design in the poem by encountering the concept of ambiguity.…
