Natasha Kroll (1912 – 2004) studied display design at the Reimann School in Berlin, and joined its teaching staff when the school moved to London in 1936. In 1942 Kroll was appointed display manager at Simpson (Piccadilly) Ltd where her display philosophy, rooted in European modernism, complemented the new premises designed by Joseph Emberton. In 1956 Kroll joined the production design department of the BBC, going on to specialise in period drama. Natasha Kroll was elected to the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry in 1966.
