Knightly Design

British industrial designer Kenneth Grange was knighted as part of the New Year Honours announced at the end of 2012. Called “Britain’s leading product designer” by the Design Museum, a retrospective exhibition was held there in 2011 to celebrate the prolific master’s work. He co-founded Pentagram in 1972, and is known for designing many of Britain’s iconic elements – including Kodak cameras, the Anglepoise lamp, the Intercity 125 train, and the TX1 London Taxi.
