10 Most Iconic Industrial Designs
Today, March 5th, is the first annual National Industrial Design Day.
In honor of the new national holiday I’ve compiled a list of 10 of the most iconic industrial designs.
To illustrate just how iconic these designs are I’ve created 10 accompanying line drawings that, even in their simplicity, are still easily identifiable.
Some of these designs are so perfect they don’t even seem like designs.
An alternative design is unimaginable.
Here we go:
Mikhail Kalashnikov (1948)
Jonathon Ives (2001)
Jacob Davis/Levi Strauss (1873)
Root Glass Co. (1916)
Model 302 Telephone
Henry Dreyfuss (1936)
U.S. Navy (1898)
Walter Hunt (1849)
George A. Stephen (1956)
George G. Blaisdell (1933)
