Ralph Rapson (Architecture, 1954-84) died in 2008 and was, of course, widely known for his modernist architecture. But he also created domestic artifacts -- flatware, teapots, lamps, dishes, jewelry, fabrics, clothing, and most of all furniture. Rapson produced hundreds of furniture designs including a successful line for K.G. Knoll Associates in the 1940s.
