Wilhelm Wagenfeld is a celebrated german industrial designer from the Bauhaus. He also happens to be the grandfather of my colleague and good friend at RMIT University Malte Wagenfeld. Malte and I studied industrial design together and his grandfathers career was often referenced during our studies. I have long sought one of his famous lamps for my collection. Whilst visiting the Auckland Museum it was wonderful to see his tea set on permanent display in the design and decorative arts section.
