Shock of the Old: Christopher Dresser

March 5, 2004 – July 25, 2004

Museum: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Location: 1st & 2nd Floors

This first, full-scale museum retrospective of the works of 19th-century pioneer industrial designer Christopher Dresser features over 300 of his major works. Examples of his creations -- furniture, fabric and wallpaper designs, architectural ornamentation, ceramics and metalworks, including his cubic teapot -- reveal how shockingly modern his creations are today.
