In Soviet Russia, product designs you

February 4, 2013

Having grown up during the Cold War, culture in the Workers’ Paradise has always held a kind of grim fascination for me. So much of it is like a frozen-in-time snapshot of America in the 1950s. Back then it seemed clunky, quaint and perhaps a bit creepy. Now it seems weirdly retro-cool, almost like its own brand.

Those lucky enough to have been in Moscow this past January (yes, we did use "lucky," "January" and "Moscow" in the same sentence) got a unique opportunity to get a taste of Brand Russia. The Moscow Design Museum held an exhibit called Soviet Design 1950s - 1980s, which featured some of the gems you can see at this link.
