Written by Christopher Alm • March 22nd, 2013

The definitive Populuxe film on 1950s automotive, industrial, interior and architectural design. A tribute to the American designer presented by Chevrolet.

The fist half of this film is a collage of 1950’s American design from appliances to architecture, the second half follows the design process of a new Chevrolet automobile from the early sketches to a full sized model and finally the finish product. A Tribute to Men and Women who Design.
