One of my favorite blogs is Forthzine by Jonas Forth. I mentioned one of his posts the other day, and I'm sharing another one today. He has collected photos of designers building or examining prototypes of their well-known pieces, and it's truly amazing to feel like you've had a glimpse at the inception of an icon.

Again, I encourage you to check out the entire post for yourself. I'll just show you a few of my favorites.

All images from
