Walter von Nessen

Walter von Nessen is an industrial design trailblazer and a champion of modern design. From the outset, his designs were the foremost examples of the modern trend. The progression of von Nessen styles range from the German deco of the early 20's to the American Deco of the mid 20's to the functionalism which dominated his work until his death in 1943. By combining functionalism with new materials, he helped establish a new design vocabulary.
