When Michiganís industry and design intertwined, Michigan became an epicenter of modern design, with visionaries statewide turning from the simple generation of products to design that rippled throughout the country. Detroitís automobile manufacturers styled automobiles synonymous with the American dream. The stateís furniture designers revolutionized the look of the American office and home. Michigan architects Albert Kahn, Eero Saarinen, and Minoru Yamasaki defined an era.
