The Home: A Celebration of Everyday Design
Mass Market Classics is a supremely cool and consumer-driven showcase of everyday interior design of the 1950s. '60s, '70s and '80s. From toasted sandwich makers and Tupperware containers to mass-produced polypropylene or tubular steel chairs, from porch swings to cocktail shakers. Mass Market Classics delves into the various living areas of the suburban home and the catalogues from where the artefacts were ordered to find the best of popular design. The book combines hip graphic treatments with a level of ironic kitschness that reflects the products featured. Internationally acclaimed pop-cultural design aficionado Wayne Hemingway adds his uniquely witty commentary, as a collector and champion of mass-produced interior design.
