"American Modern 1925-1940: Design for a New Age presents more than 125 important works by some fifty designers who led this movement, among them Norman Bel Geddes, Donald Deskey, Henry Dreyfuss, Paul Frankl, William Lescaze, Raymond Loewy, Gilbert Rohde, Eliel Saarinen, Walter Dorwin Teague, Kem Weber, and Russel Wright. Featured are a wide array of objects - furniture, glassware, ceramics, textiles, metalwork, light fixtures, household appliances, and graphic arts - which are distinguished by the absence of traditional ornament, the use of new technologies and materials, and the application of techniques of mass production to create affordable objects for an expanding middle class."
