Web Site of the Week: Industrial Design History

idhCreated and maintained by a team of scholars at Auburn University, this site “celebrates the determination, audacity and ingenuity of the industrial design profession.” It’s a great way to learn about the designed world, as described within sections like History Research, Design Stories, Historical Musings, and Resources. The Design Stories area is a great place to start, as it contains oral histories and video-taped interviews with Budd Steinheilber talking about his design for the Tucker automobile and Tom Hardy talking about designing the first IBM PC keyboard. In the History Research area, visitors can read original articles written for the site and also view the Biographies Timeline, which features profiles of designers like Peter Behrens, Walter Gropius, and Helen Dryden.
