Dennett, Devon

(1905 - 1960)

Devon Dennett was an American craftsman, furniture designer and model maker. Several of his models were shown at the 1945 “Tomorrow's Small House” exhibition at MoMA, New York. He also worked on JFK airport (then known as the Pan Am terminal at Idlewild airport). He learned the craft from his mother, the women's rights activist Mary Coffin Ware Dennett (1872 - 1947), who was deeply interested in the Arts and Crafts movement.
