DESIGN THIS DAY by Walter Dorwin Teague


Email this review


This hasn't been done, and no better person than Teague could have been found to do it. An industrial designer, he knows at first hand the problems of adjusting modern technique and modern principles to artistic application in the furniture of our living. By this is meant,our buildings, our cities,our transportation systems, our machines, our inanimate and practical devices. It is a handbook of design discussed in terms of the machine age, with the emphasis on fitness in relation to functional value, to materials available, to modern techniques. He makes convincing the necessity of throwing overboard the traditions of art. The photographs throughout are evidence of the soundness of his views.
