Viktor Schreckengost’s Legacy of Design

Jennifer Keirn

 Viktor Schreckengost turned 100 years old in 2006, receiving not only a National Medal for the Arts from President George W. Bush, but also a yearlong tribute that saw 130 exhibitions of the visionary industrial designer's work staged throughout the country. Virtually everyone has seen or used a product he's created or influenced, from toys and bicycles to lawn chairs and dinnerware. We asked industrial designers John Nottingham and John Spirk, who were once Schreckengost's students at the Cleveland Institute of Art and remained close friends with him until his 2008 death, to pick their favorites.
