Michigan was the home and destination of modern designers and architects throughout the mid-20th century. Attracted by the state’s thriving post war economy, Michigan offered a place where creativity was celebrated and ideas could actually be put into production. As a result, Michigan’s design community became one of the most nationally influential in the postwar world, and today Michigan employs more industrial designers than any other state. This session explores Michigan’s design legacy, which ranges from natives like Alden Dow and Ralph Rapson to European artists like Louis Redstone or Ruth Adler Schnee to imaginative minds like Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen and Minoru Yamasaki.
