Joseph Eichler is a post-war real estate developer who’s most famous for building high-quality, modernist homes on a large scale. According to his son, Eichler was inspired to develop well-crafted modernist homes for the masses after living in a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

The line is helmed by designer Martin Bergstrom and features work from artisans in Romania, Thailand, and India. The collection ranges from decorative objects, like wooden mushrooms and banana-fiber baskets, to apparel and accessories, like flowy kaftans and scarves.

Wright attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for just two semesters before deciding to study architecture in the more practical setting of an architectural firm. After leaving school in 1887, he moved to Chicago where he worked as an architectural detailer under J.L.
