Modern Made Leisure was a 2022 installation of nine sculptural vessels placed at Fallingwater by American artist and Fallingwater Institute Artist-in-Residence, Charles Lutz.
While in in-residence, Lutz explored the Kaufmann’s legacy as merchants and tastemakers. This line of inquiry led him to discover that Kaufmann’s Department Store in Pittsburgh was the exclusive retailer of Ruba Rombic glassware in this region, a famous, Deco-era glassware that was fabricated locally in Coraopolis, PA. This catalog chronicles Lutz's research, artist process, and invites visitors to consider the Kaufmann’s curatorial approach to populating their extraordinary vacation home with fine and decorative objects.
