About

As science and technology became more visible in the 1950's, their influence was fast to seep into the world of design. One manifestation of the era consisted of geometric lines--simple, abstract--that were quick to remind of space travel, atomic particles, organisms as seen through a microscope, or an image from X-ray technology. Industrial design, graphic design, architecture, fashion, and even animation--such as the popular television show "The Jetsons"--were thus influenced. Little escaped the trend.

This tea set signed by the Boutique Dumanoir, Etain, is a beautiful example of the period. The clean, simple lines of each and every piece might, with a few twists and turns, be configured to form an Unidentified Flying Object! Without a doubt, this is a spectacular, elegant example of the best of 1950s design.
