Also of note in this unfortunately now closed exhibition was an electroplated nickle silver vase designed by Ilonka Karasz and manufactured by Paye & Baker. Karasz was known for her avant-garde industrial design and many New Yorker magazine covers. An essay on her work is included in the book Making Design available at Cooper Hewitt.
What was surprising to me was that Paye & Baker was the manufacturer. I never thought of them as doing notable design production. There is so much more to learn!
