Michael Graves Brings His Teakettle to the Parsons Table


If you only know him as The Man Who Saved Target, you might be pleasantly surprised to know that Michael Graves is responsible for much more than chirpy appliances.

Beyond his iconic product design for Big Red and Alessi, Graves has done hotels, a line of fixtures like faucets and showerheads, and buildings like the Disney headquarters. His most recent work are these cool prefab gazebos that are sure to lend much needed class to McMansions everywhere. Graves also sustained a life-threatening illness that’s left him unable to walk, leading to an unplanned foray into hospital architecture and accessible design.
