Art HistoryIn 1928 the short-lived but important American Designers' Gallery opened in New York and introduced consumers to modern interiors and furnishings by designers, one of which was Donald Deskey (American, 1894–1989). The Minnesota-born Deskey was a multi-talented and innovative furniture, interior, graphic and industrial designer, widely-known for his 1932 interior for Radio City Music Hall, as well as designing some of America's most iconic logos and symbols. Having lived in Paris from 1923 to 1926, Deskey studied painting, worked as a graphic designer and drew great inspiration from the 1925 Paris Exposition.
