Designers created housewares from leftovers
June 15, 2003
Industrial design is an idea that started in the 20th century. A group of men and women designed or redesigned commercial products to make them work better and look more attractive. Everything from train locomotives to chairs to electric fans to kitchenware to lamps were improved or newly created. Chase Brass and Copper Co. hired a number of designers to help create housewares using leftovers from copper and brass plumbing parts and pipes. Lurelle Guild, Russel Wright, Walter van Nessen and others designed pieces using these recycled leftovers. A round sprinkling can and a lamp with a round base were each made using a round copper toilet-float. Candlesticks, bookends and lamps were manufactured from copper tubing. A corn-on-the-cob set, with a round butter pitcher and round salt and pepper shakers, was made from the molds used for brass balls that fit on the ends of bed frames. The clever designers were able to suggest inexpensive ways to make attractive, high-style pieces. Chase chrome wares are collected today to display and to use.
