Kenneth Grange

Grange was a true product of British post-Second World War confidence in design. Practicing under the apprenticeship of several designers involved in the Festival of Britain exhibition, he would go on to embrace design for mass production and produce some of the most iconic industrial designs of the twentieth century. British industrial designer, born in London, Grange has been prolific in the amount of work he has produced, and in doing so has gained international reputation. His work, ranging from everyday domestic objects such as a steam iron for Morphy Richards (1966) to large-scale transport design with the British Rail InterCity 125 (1976), has become ubiquitous in the lives of millions of consumers worldwide. The sheer amount of work has positioned Grange as one of the foremost British designers of the postwar period.
