Design History: Henry Dreyfuss

Industrial designer, Henry Dreyfuss, 1904-1972, opened his design office in 1929 to design products for corporate America. That same year, he won a prestigious design competition for creating "the phone of the future," a tabletop version that included transmitter and receiver in the same handset - a revolutionary concept for its time.

Dreyfuss’ legacy was his ability to create user-friendly devises based on and adapted to the human form.
