Anybody else get this mailer from Chicago Athenaeum, advertising the Good Design awards?
Yes, that is the old Soviet version of the Space Shuttle on the cover, complemented by a Memphis bookcase.
Inside the mailer is a pixelated photo of Nelson, Wormley, Saarinen, Bertoia, Eames, and Risom in 1961, sitting on their chairs. Below their photo are photo descriptions of "NASA Space Shuttle (STS) first launch, 1981".
Who the hell made this mailer, and is this a joke? Its seriously awful. The paper and printing is sub-par as well, and I don't think they even got the color of the Good Design square/circle logo correct. But calling Buran the NASA STS goes beyond the pale. Absolutely clueless.
'Good Design' indeed.
