Design Icon: Russel Wright

Industrial designer Russel Wright helped define American postwar living through his tableware, books, and furniture.
Born at the turn-of-the-19th Century, industrial designer Russel Wright’s career began in the 1920s, when American culture began to shift toward modernity and the concept of a uniquely American lifestyle. Wright’s affordable, mass produced dinnerware and furniture were all designed around the concept of the table as the center of the home. He was best known for his serving ware, but also built furniture and appliances, and co-authored a book.
