The ’50s displayed an anxious truce between the geometrical and the natural, between design and performance. Curve-fitting sheath outfits were in for the women. Rockets were the indication of the periods. Vehicles were near splitting away from the curvaceous pockets of the ’40s. In ’48, the Rolls royce obtained the first aeronautical bout, but by ’53 it was still wearing adequate shapes and many firefox, along with a couple of weapons (or Dagmars) on the top side fender.
However, in counterpoint (and also in ’53) there showed up the more stylish Eurostyle collections of the traditional Studebakers developed by Raymond Loewy.
Two of the most well-known forms of ’50s style were the bounce back and what Tom Hines, in his guide on style, Populuxe, phone calls “the blob.”
The reputation of the bounce back shown the stress between geometry and natural. There, basically, was a great fad for boomerangs at the time! In ’55, Chrysler implemented a new logo that contains juxtaposed bounce back forms. One of the most well-known seats of the era was the Hardog, or butterfly seat made up of several bounce back steel components over which was installed a fabric throw, often in lemon. Even the fantastic archways of the new McDonald’s pizza sequence increasing around the scenery were customized boomerangs.
