Köln | 1901.2016 - 05.06.2016

"In 2016, it will be 120 years since the first words were transmitted to a receiver. The technology spread at break-neck speed and radio broadcasting became the first mass medium. The corresponding devices’ history has been a varied and colourful one, from pure components and wooden boxes to dark-coloured boom boxes, bold design objects, voluminous radiograms, cult combination devices and fun models. In the age of internet radio and smartphones, the device itself seems destined to disappear."

Bellevue Arts Museum | Inspiring Beauty: 50 Years of Ebony Fashion Fair | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Bellevue | 20.05.2016 - 14.08.2016
"Inspiring Beauty, the first ever exhibition on the Ebony Fashion Fair, explores the 50-year history of the fashion spectacle that redefined concepts of beauty, style, and empowerment for African Americans. The exhibition also profiles the Fair's visionary director and producer, Eunice W. Johnson, co-founder of Johnson Publishing Company and publisher of Ebony and Jet magazines. The garments, accessories, photographs, videos, and ephemera that make up the exhibition convey the story of Johnson's ability to defeat racist attitudes while gaining access to many of Europe's premier fashion houses, revolutionizing the relationship between African Americans and the fashion establishment."

High Museum | Iris van Herpen - Transforming Fasion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Atlanta | 07.11.2015 - 15.05.2016

"Iris van Herpen works at the nexus of fashion, design, technology, and science. With a dynamic and path-breaking body of work, she is widely heralded as a pioneering new voice in fashion. Fashion is about quick deadlines, international platforms, and a voracious need for the next new thing. It is a discipline that requires tremendous creative energy to constantly produce and perform. Van Herpen is known for her willingness to experiment—exploring new fabrics created by blending steel with silk or iron filings with resin, incorporating unexpected materials ranging from umbrella tines to magnets, and pushing the boundaries of technologies such as 3-D printing."

BEPARTLIVE | La botiga de l'Anson

BEPARTLIVE | La botiga de l'Anson | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Waregem | 26.03.2016 - 01.05.2016

"La Botiga de l’Anson is a project by the Spanish artist Martí Anson (1967, Mataró (ES), lives and works in Barcelona). He developed it for the Species of Spaces exhibition at MACBA (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona) in 2015. [...]

Martí Anson takes his inspiration from everyday things, from the banality that surrounds us and from the trivial. La Botiga (the shop) explores the boundaries between reality and fiction. The shop space is filled with furniture made to a design by Joaquim Anson, the artist’s father, who designed and made furniture for his family and friends in the 1960s. It was at that time that General Franco’s Spain was starting to open up to the outside world. Spain became a popular holiday destination, with a booming hotel industry and an expanding consumer society that was the consequence of increased prosperity. Design was only integrated into the fabric of society on a very minimal scale, however. Many products imitated modernity in their form, rather than being truly Modernist. This is how Joaquim Anson got the idea of designing chairs, benches and tables himself. (:)La Botiga de l’Anson(i) is an exploration of the banal space and ordinariness, a study of the boundary between social reality and art. By filling the shop with furniture, cushions, lamps and drawings, Martí Anson questions the space and makes it possible to interpret it."

FIT - Fashion Institute of Technology | Fairy Tale Fashion

FIT - Fashion Institute of Technology | Fairy Tale Fashion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 15.01.2016 - 16.04.2016

"Fairy Tale Fashion is a unique and imaginative exhibition that examines fairy tales through the lens of high fashion. In versions of numerous fairy tales by authors such as Charles Perrault, the Brothers Grimm, and Hans Christian Andersen, it is evident that dress is often used to symbolize a character’s transformation, vanity, power, or privilege. The importance of Cinderella’s glass slippers is widely known, for example, yet these shoes represent only a fraction of the many references to clothing in fairy tales."

Millenium Gallery | In the Making: Ruskin, Creativity and Craftsmanship | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Sheffield | 23.01.2016 - 05.06.2016
"John Ruskin believed the act of making represents the perfect convergence of human spirit, skill and material. For Ruskin, creative effort shapes an artist or artisan just as indelibly as they in turn shape the stone they sculpt or the fabric they weave.This new exhibition curated by Museums Sheffield will explore Ruskin’s ideas on making through a broad range of historical and contemporary art and craft. In the Making brings together work by artists including Grayson Perry, Susan Collis, Edward Coley Burne-Jones and Ruskin himself."

MUDAC | This Is Not A Bottle!

MUDAC | This Is Not A Bottle! | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Lausanne | 18.11.2015 - 05.06.2016
"[Mudac and the Musée du Vin] accordingly decided to investigate the containers that carry the precious beverage from the cellar to the table. The intention is not to recount the history and usage of the glass bottle, but to map out the relationship between these functional receptacles and contemporary glass design. Although design plays around with function and utility, the interest of museum pieces lies precisely in the fact that they are no longer used! Selected objects are staged in a way that emphasises this paradox, showcasing the different aspects of the bottle today and, by association, sketching an outline of historical drinkers and their contemporary counterparts. This is not a bottle explores the many facets of the bottle, including functionality, industrial design and creative expression."

Vitra Design Museum | Objection! Protest by Design

Vitra Design Museum | Objection! Protest by Design | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Weil am Rhein | 26.02.2016 - 29.05.2016

"On 28 September 2014 spontaneous protests erupted in Hong Kong as a reaction to proposed changes in the electoral process. The international media not only reported on the protesters, but also on the myriad designs and infrastructures they had created. Everyday objects were turned into barricades, shelters and sculptures. The umbrellas that gave the movement its name, the »Umbrella Movement«, protected the demonstrators from the tear gas used by the police. The exhibition in the Vitra Design Museum Gallery presents this act of civil disobedience through the objects and projects that were spawned by the movement – illustrating that design not only shapes and defines products, but can function as an agent of change in politics, communication and social innovation."

Mobilier national. Galerie des Gobelins | Jean Lurçat (1892-1966). Au seul bruit du soleil

Mobilier national. Galerie des Gobelins | Jean Lurçat (1892-1966). Au seul bruit du soleil | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Paris | 04.05.2016 - 18.09.2016

"The exhibition dedicated to Jean Lurcat at the Galerie des Gobelins invites us to rediscover the journey of this painter, ceramist, tapestry designer, whose influence has marked the history of the contemporary tapestry. Scenography, designed by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, is concieved as a tribute from an architect (about to wear his academician costume), to an elder for which the decor and architecture issues were closely linked. From the first room, we are immersed in the universe of the artist, a representation of the façade of his workshop house, built in Paris by his brother, the architect André Lurçat. Once through the gate, the visitor gets in the studio of the painter, evocated by the bold design of Jean-Michel Wilmotte. There, he can admire the early work of the artist, before continuing his chrono-thematic path on both levels of the Galerie des Gobelins. The display will offer to explore the intense relationship between tapestry, carpets and high interior decoration."

Schiltach | 18.06.2015 - 15.05.2016

"Decorative, colourful and often excessive – that's our impression of the 1970s. The bathrooms of that period were completely in keeping with the spirit of the time: colourful and with a passion for décor, the design experimented with new shapes and materials. The exhibition compares bathrooms from different continents and demonstrates the basic conditions and social, economic and political developments in Europe, Asia and South America which influenced bathroom design. The roots of globalisation, which we experience on a daily basis, can also be traced back to this era."

Galérie Poirel | Zones de confort | design exhibitions | Scoop.it
Nancy | 21.11.2015 - 18.04.2016
"The exhibition suggests different ways to experience "comfort", a concept that has become so omnipresent in design practice and theory that it has almost grown imperceptible. Where does this "state of convenience and well-being akin to pleasure to which all men naturally aspire" come from? What forms does it take? [...] Comfort Zones places mass-manufactured products, comfort produced in standardised forms, alongside works that upset the standard models. In doing so, the exhibition reflects two contemporary movements in design: the search for solutions and the formulation of critiques."
This exhibition is the product of a partnership between the city of Nancy, Galerie Poirel and the CNAP. It is the first in a series of three exhibitions that will offer different perspectives on the Cnap’s design collection.

RMIT Design Hub | 100 Chairs in 100 Days: Martino Gamper

RMIT Design Hub | 100 Chairs in 100 Days: Martino Gamper | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Melbourne | 26.02.2016 - 09.04.2016

"Renowned for his cross-disciplinary and culturally responsive approach to design, London-based Martino Gamper came to major acclaim with 100 Chairs in 100 Days. In this project Gamper collected disused chairs from alleyways and friends’ homes and reassembled them — one per day — into poetic and often humorous forms.
Shown in Australia for the first time, 100 Chairs in 100 Days is an experiment in transforming limitations into possibilities. For RMIT Design Hub, Gamper will create a new version of the 100th chair, fabricated within a single day and only using found materials, structures and designs. The exhibition incorporates a workshop or ‘ideas exchange’ where Gamper will discuss his process-driven practice with local invited designers."
