Mid-Century Modern Strikes Back: Carl Hansen & Son Resurrects Hans Wegner's "Oculus" Chair

(8 years ago)
We clearly have mixed feelings about Mid-Century Modern furniture here at Core: on one hand, it's past its heyday (as its very name suggests); on the other hand, it has become a classic—if not altogether timeless—aesthetic in itself.The recent rediscovery of Hans J. Wegner's "Oculus" chair—designed in 1960 but forgotten until 2009—then, is effectively beyond criticism: of course it hearkens to a previous era, precisely because it is from the middle of last century. The New York Times reports that the chair resurfaced in "an e-mail from the Wegner studio [to Carl Hansen & Son] with a picture of the chair from a 1968 magazine."Yet it's considered a new model, because the long-lost design never made it to production; apparently a single prototype survived the past half-century:"Normally, when we develop or relaunch an old product, we buy it at auction and cut it in two to see what it's like on the inside," Mr. Vagner [President of Carl Hansen Corp.] said. But since it was the only one, they had it scanned in 3-D, so they could see the interior.Where staid brands such as Fritz Hansen have invited established designers to expand the horizon of their offerings within a minimalist aesthetic, there is certainly a sense that the style itself is not quite. (Carl Hansen & Son, for their part, have been more conservative with their recent designs.)And while it's strange to imagine Wegner designing beyond the grave, it's not often that you hear about posthumous[..]

Elliot Handler, Hot Wheels Inventor and Mattel Co-Founder, Passes Away

(8 years ago)
You may not know his name, but you definitely know his work. Elliot Handler, the co-founder of toy company Mattel, passed away last week at the age of 95.Handler studied industrial design at Pasadena's Art Center, way back in the 1930s and '40s. After serving in the Army during World War II, Handler co-founded Mattel with a buddy, later buying him out to take sole control of the company with his wife. In the '50s and '60s Mattel released at least two iconic toy designs that catapulted them into the Fortune 500: The Barbie Doll—created by Handler's wife, Ruth—and Handler's targeted-at-boys counterpart, the Hot Wheels line of cars. Read a condensed version of Handler's life story here, and check out the interesting back-story on Barbie's genesis—based on a German doll which was in turn based on a German comic strip—here.(more...)

Sewing Furniture, Part 6: The Brilliant, Unsung Design of Singer's No. 74 "Spinet" Cabinet

(8 years ago)
Most classic sewing tables have a central and glaring ergonomic flaw that few have attempted to tackle with design. The flaw arises from an unskillful negotiation between what the user needs and what the physical dimensions of the table provide.The central problem is that a sewing machine operator should be centered on the needle of the machine, which is off to the left side. They must be able to clearly see what the needle is doing and use both hands to guide the fabric. But most sewing tables are trying to fit a 15-inch wide machine in an unobtrusive footprint, so the designers would center the machine in a table scarcely wider than the machine itself. Thus, when the operator sits at the table and places their legs in the space allotted, they are centered on the machine itself and must lean to the left to get their noses in line with the needle. If you shift your seat over to be centered on the needle, you hit your left leg on the left table leg. I wonder that there's not a generation of 20th-century women with S-shaped spines.One table that actually addressed this problem, tackled it with creative design, and even added some Mid-Century Modern flair is Singer's No. 74 "Spinet" Cabinet, which is shaped like a trapezoid.(more...)

"Magnetic Switch Cover" by Jake Frey Is an Attractive Design Indeed

(8 years ago)
Recent ID grad Jake Frey earns the nominal honor of designing the best 'combination-light-switch-plate-and-keyholder' with his simple magnetic switch cover, ousting a couple of hook-based contenders that we've recently come across (three's a trend?).It is a standard size switch cover plate with a high power magnet incorporated in the back, so the user can drop their keys when they turn the lights on and come into a room.If there's not much to describe, suffice it to say that the design speaks for itself... though I wonder if a "high-power magnet" might affect (or be affected by) the electric current controlled by the switch. In fact, I'm curious if it would be possible to make a magnetic keyholder that activates the lights only when the keys are present (as in some hotel rooms).Incidentally, it was designed for the Urban Outfitters (they're based in Philly, where Jake just completed his degree)... but the simple two-tone design—a subtle nod to the classic horseshoe magnet—says "hipster" more in a whisper than a shout.(more...)
