American Streamlined Design: The World of Tomorrow. This is the most comprehensive survey ever mounted on this style, inspired by the aerodynamic lines and the sleek curves of 1930s aircraft, trains and ships.  American industrial designers gave everyday objects glamorous new forms in steel, aluminum and experimental plastics to reflect the world of tomorrow.  The exhibition focuses primarily on the impact of American Streamlined design in the 1930s and 1940s with a wide range of exhibits drawn from the domestic sphere, the commercial world, interior decoration, sports and leisure. Some 180 examples of furniture, ceramics, metalwork, plastics, graphic design and books make up the exhibits, which also illustrate the continuing influence of this pioneering design aesthetic today.
