Bakelite was advertised as the Material of a Thousand Uses and was developed by the Belgian chemist and inventor Leo H. Baekeland, and patented in 1907. Initially developed for use in the electrical industry, the modernity of the material attracted designers and manufacturers and was adopted for use across most disciplines of the decorative arts.
