In the wake of World War II, American homeware and toy creators turned to whimsical, childlike designs in an effort to lift the country out of a dark period. The result was a collection of postwar relics with playful colors, patterns, and shapes. At this eye-popping exhibit, see those high-art furnishings, including famed Hungarian-American designer Eva Zeisel’s Marmite-shaped bowls and Irving Harper’s bright blue kaleidoscope-inspired clock, which will make you seriously consider spicing up your own home decor.
