Russel Wright (1904-1976) was one of America's great industrial designers. His inexpensive, mass-produced dinnerware, appliances, textiles, and furniture introduced modern design to millions of American households between 1930 and the mid-1960s. In addition to designing objects for the home, Wright also pioneered the concept of "easier living" for the middle class. This text presents a thorough interpretation of Wright's achievement and his effect on the American domestic environment. His products are examined, his how-to manuals for achieving modern living and his marketing schemes to bring his products and ideas to the public.
