Isamu Noguchi, Radio Nurse and Guardian Ear, 1937, bakelite
As featured in The Noguchi Museum’s current exhibition, Isamu Noguchi, Patent Holder: Designing the World of Tomorrow, an early industrial design commission for Noguchi from the Zenith Corporation, which hoped to corner the market for a remote monitor after sensational accounts of the kidnapping of Charles Lindbergh terrified parents throughout the United States.  Noguchi created the bakelite housing for both units (not the electrical guts).
