Don Wallance

Initial Concepts: Don Wallance Archive


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.
