Initial Concepts: Don Wallance Archive

On View: 
Tuesday, September 17, 1991 to Sunday, February 16, 1992

Don Wallance, an industrial designer known for his stainless steel tableware, was keenly interested in how hands work and how people use utensils. His exploration of ergonomics and everyday elegance is the focus of this exhibition of selections from the Museum's recently-acquired Don Wallance archive. This archive is the most complete collection of Wallance's work, and its drawings, prototypes, molds, and finished pieces are on display.  

Organized by Stephen Van Dyk, Chief Librarian, with guest curator James Benjamin, Peter Krueger/Christie's Fellow.
