Prodigy Flashlight, ca. 2000

This is a Flashlight. It is dated ca. 2000 and we acquired it in 2008. Its medium is plastic. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

This flashlight has a muscular design and an ergonomic grip that conforms to the fingers.
The museum actively collects in the area of personal electronic devices. The collection includes an impressive group of flashlights, many of which were on display in the museum’s exhibition, IDEO Selects: Works from the Permanent Collection. This flashlight is part of a group of electronics proposed for acquisition that would augment the collection’s consumer product design category.

This object was donated by Max Pine. It is credited Gift of Max Pine and Lois Mander.
