Joyful industry

By Ingrid Fetell Lee


I love that the Best Made Co., makers of the wonderful axes in my previous post, list these polka-dotted cement mixers among their inspirations. Like the axes, they’re a great example of joyful aesthetics in a utilitarian context. A heavy, noisy cement mixer receives a totally different reception from passers by when clad in polka dots than the usual industrial gray. And no matter how many times you see them, they never seem to get old.
