New materials and manufacturing methods meant that form, color, and function were all reconsidered and the result were innovations that shook the traditional ways of thinking and awoke the imagination of the public. Here is a look at the fabulous 50s designs, from furniture and lighting to glass and pottery.

The work of major designers, both international and American are represented, including Franco Albini, Charles Eames, Paul Frankl, Alexander Girard, Arne Jacobsen, Carlo Mollino, George Nelson, GiPonti, Jean Prouv, Eero Saarinen, and Ettore Sottsass. The historical information along will informative captions and rich color photographs make this a valuable resource for those who appreciate 50s design.
