Known for his 1950s and 60s postwar contemporary lighting designs—Thurston had a tremendous influence on the masses. According to many, he was extremely proud of his work and a playful man. Case in point is one of his favorite sayings: “If you can’t convince them, confuse them!”
Gerald Thurston: The Million Dollar Man
During the postwar construction boom and rise in mid-Century modern design, the in-house product design team at Lightolier, including Thurston, was of critical importance. Thurston’s right hand was insured for a million dollars. At the height of his career the design process consisted of drawing illustrations on craft paper—a far cry from our computer-generated graphics of today. Think about it: he was creating products at the same time Andy Warhol was making art. WOW!
