Walter Dorwin Teague (1883–1960) USA

Walter Dorwin Teague was an American industrial designer, architect and illustrator. In 1911 Dorwin Teague opened his own advertising office in New York. When visiting the Paris World’s Fair in 1925, he was inspired by the ideals of Modernism. From that point Dorwin Teague abandoned his traditional style to begin working with mass production. Production should reflect the requirements of the machine age. The photography company Eastman Kodak contacted the designer in 1926 to designa camera. After that the orders flowed in and Dorwin Teague worked with Sparton Corporation, bake ware for Pyrex, furnaces and gas stoves. He later also worked on the design of the aircraft types Boeing 707 and 747.
