Shot of Yellow
Recently started collecting Heller Melamine Dinnerware, Its really reasonably priced and easily accessible on most auction websites. I think this bright shot of Modern looks super cool on some messed up farm table or in a primitive setting.
Originally the brain child of Massimo Vignelli, this ubiquitous melamine dinnerware is designed to be stackable in a compact way. originally manufactured in Italy, it won the first Compasso d’oro award for good design in 1964. Introduced later in the united states and manufactured by Heller, the dinnerware became extremely popular, especially after it was produced in a rainbow of brilliant colors.
It is in the permanent collection of the museum of modern art.
