Fuse Book Review: John Vassos
Like many prominent pioneers of industrial design, John Vassos began modestly before attaining success. However, unlike most of his colleagues, Vassos began as an artist/designer whose early illustration work severely criticized the high speed commercialism of modern life. Later, he changed direction; his designs took for granted the acceleration of consumerism. At first a rebel, Vassos morphed into a member-in-good-standing of the corporate establishment.
