If you’re a fan of classic modern design, you should appreciate this Alphabet of Design Classics poster by Blue Ant Studio*. We have had the opportunity to utilize many of the designs on commercial & residential projects over the years – ranging from Poul Henningsen’s classic Artichoke Pendant Lamp (H) (which we specified for Austin’s Twin Oaks Library) to the iconic Noguchi Accent / Coffee Table (I) that we have used in numerous residential design projects. The Artichoke lamps were originally designed over 40 years ago for a restaurant (the Langelinie Pavilion) in Copenhagen, and the organic Noguchi Table was designed in the 1940's by sculptor, Isamu Noguchi. How many designs do you recognize? Which ones are your favorites?
*This poster and many other awesome designs are available online from Blue Ant Studio, which was founded by industrial / graphic designer, Joel Pirela.
