More than modern - this design movement is said to be a reflection of the positive outlooks of the times during which it flourished. Setting one of the more optimistic tones of the 20th century; mid-century modern design flourished between the late 1930s to the mid 1960s throughout Europe and the United States. Reaching mass-apeal during the mid-1950s, this style is easily identified in architecture, interior design, furniture and ligthing design, posters, and illustrations. Extensive use of concrete, steel & glass and open floor plan designs propelled the style to fame such as those by Austrian-American architect Richard Neutra with his Kaufmann Desert House (1946) and the American designers Charles and Ray Eames with their La Chaise Chair (1948).
