Fashion designer Ellen Van Dusen is known for the colors, patterns and geometrics she uses in her clothing line, Dusen Dusen. The Brooklyn designer draws much of her inspiration from kinetic art pioneer Yaacov Agam. Well-versed in the psychology of design, Van Dusen appreciates the nuances in Agam’s work, including his precise balance of the colors black and white, the multiple perspectives that can be observed at different angles and interactive pieces that can be “redesigned” by the artwork’s owner.

“As a textile designer, this is a huge source of inspiration,” Van Dusen says of the book Agam. “I have named more than one print after Agam!”
