Aalto (1898-1976) was one of the greatest names in modern architecture and Scandinavian design and a pivotal figure in the international modernist movement. From light fixtures and furniture to modern architecture, his design was minimal yet sophisticated while offering a timeless quality. The brilliant Beehive pendant lamp is a flawless modernist design icon.

  9. Jean Prouvé

    Today, we’re remembering French artist Jean Prouvé, who was born on this day in 1901. An architect and designer, his work had a widespread influence on furniture design techniques.

    During WWII, Prouvé was active with the French Resistance, earning him a position as the Mayor of Nancy after the war. His building and furniture business was also contracted to manufacture frame houses for refugees.

    Prouvé’s work was instrumental in the development of nomadic architecture. His belief was that everything, from a house to a chair, should be portable.

  14. MoMA’s Century of the Child 

    The Museum of Modern Art’s ambitious survey of 20th-century design for children, Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000, is the first large-scale overview of the Modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. 

    This kid-friendly exhibition, which opens July 29, doesn’t dwell on Victorian sentimentality, but heads right into 20th-century pragmatism without sacrificing a sense of wonder.
