THE BRA (1993)
In 1913, an American debutante, Caresse Crosby, needed a prop for her bust
that would be both effective and unobtrusive. She improvised with folded
handkerchiefs. The result was the bra.

DEODORANT (1990)
How hygiene products as well as attitudes towards body odor have changed and
transformed over the years

HARLEY DAVIDSON (1990)
The origins, as well as the powerful mythology, that surrounds this design
classic.

THE LONDON UNDERGROUND MAP (1987)
Created in 1931 by Henry Beck, a London Underground employee, this map has
become on icon for both London and British design in general (think of all
those mugs and dishtowels).

CHELSEA HOTEL (1981)
A compelling film about the artists who lived and loved this infamous hotel,
including footage of Andy Warhol and William Burroughs, Quentin Crisp and
Virgil Thompson, among others.

CRACKED ACTOR (1975)
Talk about designing a brand. In this incredible film, made in 1974 and rarely screened in the US, we see David Bowie at his most vulnerable (he was addicted to coke at the time): a self-designed artist
-- he talks about mime, costumes, and the invention of characters such as Ziggy Stardust -- on the edge of falling apart.
