Designed in the USSR: 1950-1989


With some 350 images of as many products, this new hardcover explores design in the USSR from 1950 to 1989 in an interesting peek behind the Iron Curtain. From kids’ toys to posters and electronics, these everyday items each have a tinge of kitsch while often being avant-garde at the same time. It’s a remarkable look into not only everyday life in the USSR at the time, but also the Moscow Design Museum’s collection.
