Book, B.B.C. Handbook
The British Broadcasting Corporation (B.B.C.) invested in modern graphic and interior design in the late 1920s when corporations had still not widely adopted the style. Kauffer designed covers for B.B.C. yearbooks that featured a colorful zigzag radio wave to suggest the company’s power of communication and energetic spirit. Broadcasting House, London’s B.B.C. headquarters built in 1929, featured modern interior design, most of it proudly executed by British firms. Dorn’s rugs decorated the third-floor waiting room.
