Michigan Modern: Design that Shaped America
Michigan Modern: Design that Shaped America, June 13-16, 2013, Cranbrook, Bloomfield Hills, MI
Throughout the twentieth century Michigan's industrial and design visionaries touched nearly every aspect of American life from Detroit's automobile designers to the revolutionary designs of the Herman Miller Furtniture Company. Alebert Kahn's industrial architecture for Henry Ford was an inspiration for European modernists and the work of architects Eero Saarinen and Minoru Yamasaki defined an era. Michigan's industry, prosperity, and educational institutions created a synergy that attracted some ofthe best design talent in the nation.
