A few favourites from the (German language) catalogue of a wonderful exhibition at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, World as Words: The 20th Century in Europe and the USA. Unfortunately my German is rusty to say the least, and there wasn't much in the way of information in the exhibition itself so I can't tell you a great deal more, but many of the names will be familiar to anyone with more than a passing interest in design.
