A dot on the horizon

PHOTO: Amy Rippe

If you stand in the  Philip Johnson Glass House and look westward out over the carefully designed landscape, you might spot a tiny pink dot on the horizon. This  Lutyens bench, inspired by the designs of renowned English architect Sir Edwin Lutyens, provided Philip with a welcome resting place during his daily hikes through the 47-acre site. Philip had the bench painted a pinkish-orange hue selected by the well-known colorist Donald Kaufman, to provide a striking contrast to the surrounding earth tones.
