Peter Muller-Munk and Me: Parallel Lives
Peter Muller-Munk, FIDSA, and Tucker Viemeister, FIDSA, have a lot in common. Both are silversmiths-turned-industrial designers who became IDSA Fellows. “I think I remember meeting Muller-Munk when he visited my dad, Read Viemeister, FIDSA, during discussions about merging their practices,” recalls Tucker. The Viemeisters and Muller-Munk also studied under the same educators—Donald Donner, Rowena Reed Kostellow, FIDSA; and Alexander Kostellow—who created a shared design pedagogy.
Now, Tucker shares what he sees when he looks ahead. “My story goes beyond silver and steel into our post-industrial future—where those same lessons of collaboration, innovation and beauty are pointing the way toward progress.”
