Just a few items of design that I absolutely love. Will add more soon!
"Also known as a Stendig chair, the Prague 811 was designed in 1925 by Josef Hoffman. Originally manufactured by Stendig in Czechoslovakia during the mid-sixties, the chair came in beech bentwood, and used caning for the seats and backs."

Royal Quiet De Luxe
"In 1950 Royal introduced a redesigned Quiet de Luxe model (QDL) for the second time in just five years after WWII. The first version, patented in 1945, was developed by industrial designer Henry Dreyfuss (1904 - 1972) and was part of Royal's Gray Magic line. The second version, the one on this page, expanded on that Dreyfuss model but with modernity inspired softer, rounder corners meant to rejuvenate Royal's stalwart portable typewriter."

Case Study Planter
"The Case Study Ceramics series is inspired by the prolific period in architecture and home furnishing designs immediately following WW2. The pottery that emerged from this post-war period was a radical departure in form and application. Its primeval archetypal shapes of cylinders, cones, bullets, gourds, and totems, mixed with the precision of the simple clean finishes was something completely new and fresh. Unlike its predecessors, the new pottery created portable landscapes. These new ceramic objects could be used as a planter to soften the lines of a room, or as a sculptural piece in the garden, blurring lines between exterior and interior spaces. They also functioned as a direct reflection of the home owner’s aesthetic."
