Creativity on the Line

Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University

Creativity on the Line: Design and the Corporate World, 1950-1975. This groundbreaking exhibition presents a fascinating new perspective on the creation and production of mid-century modern design by such major American figures as Eliot Noyes and Paul Rand (for IBM and Westinghouse), Charles and Ray Eames and George Nelson (for Herman Miller), Ivan Chermayeff (for Mobil Oil), and Will Burtin (for Upjohn).


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Creativity on the Line :

If loving Charles Eames is wrong, I don’t want to be right. This pick goes out to the design nerds—those of you who take pleasure in the elegant design of a late 1960s Valentine Portable Typewriter or in the modern lines of an Atomic Espresso maker for Brevetti Robbiati from the 1950s. If the show itself isn’t enough, there’s also a fabulous catalogue to set your heart ablaze.
