I'm a design student and am obsessed with modern furniture. I have a good knowledge of iconic MCM designers but sometime have a hard time pronouncing some of the lesser know designers names (or danish/japanese designers). Everyone knows how to pronounce Eames, Bertoia, van der Rohe, Noguchi, and Saarinen but some of the others can be tricky. This may be an odd question but does anyone know a source where I can find the proper way to pronounce modern designers names? It seems to give you a whole lot more creditability if you can pronounce names correctly! These are a few of the designers that I have trouble with. (I'm not saying that these designer are lesser known, or less popular! I don't want to start a riot). Maybe others can add to this thread if people have the same problem.
Thanks for any help you can provide. :)
