"La indústria de la moda FAST junt amb els mass media formen un gran engranatge de poder que governa el nostre imaginari i ens convida a un estil de vida impersonal i alienant, basat en el consum pel consum, que ens omple de coses i ens deixa buits per dins."
"NO HI HA FÓRMULA és una campanya crítica amb el sistema de la moda que desemboca en un projecte in-progress de recerca i experimentació d'alternatives: Vestidures [http://vestidures.tumblr.com/]."
Barcelona | 29.11.2013 - 10.05.2014
"The heading 'Architects of Nothingness' is suggested as the common denominator of a series of shared characteristics in the works of the chosen 12 architects. It consists of works that devote special attention to the relationship between architecture and who live in it, developing the concept of scale beyond the specific dimension of its constructions that promote the understanding of nature and what's urban as connected elements of the same landscape.
Void, just like Emptiness, not understood as a denial but as a possibility of things' being is represented in symbolic constructions through which its materiality becomes tangible."
Tallinn | 12.04 – 25.05.2014
Unique houses that resemble bird nesting boxes are two of the most interesting landmarks that Ott Puuraid (1904–1986) introduced to the cityscape as the chief architect of post-war Viljandi. Predating his Viljandi period, many modernistic buildings that he designed as a young architect have also survived. The exhibition shows original architectural plans and sketches from which we can get a glimpse of the more artistic side of the architect and of the different stages of designing a building. As an example of the “nest box”, a brand new model of Ott Puuraid’s very own house in Viljandi at 14 Ranna Avenue (1947–1955) has been made for the occasion.
Paris | 08.02.2014 - 10.05.2014
"When evoking Stuart Haygarth’s work, what stands out is the power of his perception. This exceptional designer began his career as a photographer. Between 1988 and 2003, he produced still life studio images, putting together his compositions like a puppeteer. He willingly cites the poetry of the American artist Joseph Cornell as an early point of reference."
Chicago | until 11.05.2014

Sunderland | 18.01.2014 - 04.05.2014
"Think 20th Century icons. Grace Kelly. Colin Firth. Michael Caine in his signature black spectacles. Audrey Hepburn in the big white glasses that framed her elfin face. Iconic style makers – Givenchy, Dior and Vidal Sassoon. Think cult films of the fifties & sixties. In the second half of last century, when it came to eyewear, Oliver Goldsmith was synonymous with stars and style."
Hornu | 09.02.2014 - 04.05.2014
"A pioneer of organic design and an iconic figure of Scandinavian architecture and design, Alvar Aalto is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for current generations. Designed to be all-embracing art forms (gezamtkunstwerken), his projects include furniture and lighting with a humanist spirit. It is his work on artificial lighting, meticulous investigations inspired by the subtle Nordic light that he was keen to include in his architectural work, which Grand-Hornu Images has decided to explore in more detail. The roots of this project lie in a private collection (various owners) containing more than a hundred pieces."
León | 15.03.2014 - 01.06.2014

"Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) was one of the most prolific designers the world has ever seen. His furniture paved the way for the international breakthrough of Danish Design in the years after World War II. In 1949 he created the Round Chair, which the Americans dubbed “The Chair”: the ultimate chair design. Over his long career he created some 500 chairs. Wegner’s work always stems from the manual craft, and he personally created many of the prototypes in his workshop. His life was a constant quest to explore the logic and potentials of wood. In 2014, Designmuseum Danmark celebrates the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner’s birth with the exhibition “Hans J. Wegner – just one good chair”.
Bexley | 01.04.2014 - 31.10.2014
A new exhibition celebrating the historic and contemporary art of quilting.
"We spend a third of our lives in bed, much of that time under covers such as quilts to keep us warm. Although some have metamorphosed over time from useful household objects to works of art, Things We Do in Bed celebrates quilts’ continuing links to what goes on behind the bedroom door. A lively mix of quilts and quilt works will be displayed through the five bedrooms in Danson House, with each room focusing on a different bed activity: Birth, Sleep, Sex, Illness, Death.
The show will feature traditional historical quilts dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, alongside contemporary quilted work from artists".

"Le Corbusier, una figura clave de la arquitectura del siglo xx, fue pionero en los estudios de mejora de las viviendas de las clases más bajas y propuso nuevas formas de arquitectura eficiente en ciudades muy pobladas. Le Corbusier fue, a su vez, un artista multidisciplinario, con una obra que se extiende también a la pintura y la fotografía, uniendo arte y arquitectura."

Schiltach | 03.04.2014 - 21.09.2014
"Is this how we will be living in the future? A textile bathroom integrates plants into its water cycle; the kitchen is transformed into a place where we produce our own food; we sleep in tents within an atmospheric ambience, and the focal point of the interior décor is the “Bikini Island” sofa landscape.
It's quite possible! Come and be inspired by the visions of living and material experiments of A&W Designer of the Year 2014, Werner Aisslinger: Axor assisted the Berlin-based product designer with his futuristic bathroom biotope, which takes centre stage at the exhibition.
Experience a wide variety of examples of future living, presented in unusual installations and collages and supplemented by many of Aisslinger's designer pieces."

"What would you wear to meet a president, a princess or The King?
This exhibition features ten clothes encounters – stories exploring the clothing worn or created by a diverse range of Australians, from different eras and walks of life, in response to significant political, creative and social encounters in their lives.
Drawn from the Powerhouse Museum collection, this exhibition is a reminder that the fashion and dress choices we make reflect our aspirations and identity, and more broadly form part of a society’s cultural expression. Clothes can define a moment in time."
Portland | 28.03.2014 - 03.05.2014
"This exhibition takes a deeper look into two very different wood-fired kilns in our vicinity: the first, Stephen Mickey’s Soulgama kiln; and the second, Careen Stoll’s Tin Man kiln. A look at the unique qualities of a wood-fired pot: the glaze effects of wood ash and the unpredictability of the finished product. A look at how community plays a crucial role in the firing of these two kilns, and how community develops around the fire."
Asheville | 24.01.2014 - 03.05.2014

Hamburg | until 24.08.2014
"Is there no competition for the Stradivari? When did the violin lose its body? What’s a flageolet? How did the oboe get its name and the transverse flute its keys? And since when have ladies been allowed to play the flute? These and other suspenseful questions lure visitors onto a journey through the history of instruments and music of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries."
New York | 03.12.2013 - 30.04.2014
"Fashion trends are constantly changing. A single shift in print, color, material, embellishment, or silhouette may quickly become a major new trend. Yet while the contemporary fashion press tirelessly reports the latest trend news, it offers scant insight into where trends originate. Utilizing 100 objects from the museum’s permanent collection, Trend-ology examines the diverse sources from which fashion trends have emerged over the past 250 years, including urban street style, art, music, film, and socio-political movements. The exhibition also highlights industry developments that have had an impact on how trends spread."
