happy birthday: eva ziesel turns 103!

World-renowned Hungarian industrial designer Eva Zeisel turned 103 on Friday. Though she is best known for her decorative art ceramics, Zeisel has designed furniture and other housewares. Zeisel's work is in the collections of the MoMa, the MET & the V&A. She was awarded with the National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York in 2005 at the age of 99. She continues to create new works and her repetoire of design is still fresh and very current today thanks to her signature organic shapes. New York magazine named Zeisel as one of nine living Design Revolutionaries back in '07 as well. You can pick up some of her tableware at Unica Home & Crate & Barrel or shop for vintage pieces too. Learn more about her and her work on the Eva Zeisel collectors forum and don't miss her TED talk below!
