I Have Seen the Future | Norman Bel Geddes Designs America

Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958) was an innovative stage and industrial designer, futurist, and urban planner who created and promoted a dynamic vision of the future—streamlined, technocratic, and optimistic. His most notable effort was his Futurama display for the General Motors “Highways and Horizons” exhibit at the 1939-40 New York World’s Fair.

Form follows function - that’s been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.

La forme suit la fonction - c'est se méprendre. La forme et la fonction doivent ne faire qu'un, se joindre dans une union spirituelle.
