Aluminum by Design: Jewelry to Jets
| The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum celebrates the history of this versatile material with a retrospective look at its uses during the last 150 years. An ideal material for the modern age, aluminum was sought not only as a strong, light, and efficient material for use in airplanes, automobiles, and homes... but it also became a magical substance in the hands of notable designers such as Henry Dreyfuss, Walter von Nessen, and Marcel Breuer. Accompanied by an engaging online Flash
introduction, the exhibit runs from March 20 through July 15, 2001.
