Classic Modern Design Spotlight

Our Design Spotlight profiles zoom in for a closer look at the background and history of a select line-up of mid 20th century modern designers and producers. When we began writing these profiles in 2003 we chose to focus on people and organisations whose role in creating some of our favourite midcentury modern designs was not widely known, and about whom publicly accessible information was virtually non-existent at the time. They are all of course much better known today, and all continue to stand the test of time.
