For the second BPF Classic Design lecture, Dr Louise Dennis will be looking at the Ekco A22 radio and how it played a part in the acceptance of plastics in the domestic setting. Designed by Wells Coates, a modernist, who was a Canadian architect and furniture designer living in the UK. Ekco was famous for this round radio design, of which this is the last of the round radio series.

It is the UK's leading resource for the study and interpretation of design in plastics. MoDiP is a specialist research resource at the Arts University College at Bournemouth.
