Since its inception in 1950, Tupperware has been helping chefs and preserving dinners around the globe. The lidded, plastic containers are so popular and well-designed that, Tupperware was awarded the National Design Award in Corporate Achievement by the Smithsonians Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and, in 2004, PBS premiered the documentary Tupperware!, which chronicles the history and life of the $1.2 billion a year company. The many styles of Tupperware are even housed in the permanent collections of fine art museums around the world, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; and the Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris. ~Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Design Museum of Ghent, Belgium, Tupperware: Transparent is the complete catalogue raisonné of 45 years of Tupperware in Europe. Woven through the extensive illustrations is the story of Tupperware pioneers Earl Tupper (aha!) and Brownie Wise, a discussion about the origins of the well-known Tupperware party, notable Tupperware collectables, and the history of development of the famous Tupperware design. And, best of all, Tupperware:Transparent comes in an exclusive Tupperware edition, thus ensuring that the book will be protected for years to come.Peter/Scholliers is the author of 'Tupperware Transparent', published 2006 under ISBN 9789058561565 and ISBN 9058561569.
