Design Museum | United Micro Kingdoms : a Design Fiction

Design Museum | United Micro Kingdoms : a Design Fiction | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

London | 01.05.2013 - 26.08.2013

"UmK presents perspectives on a fictional future for the United Kingdom, as imagined by designers and educators Dunne & Raby. The exhibition sees England devolved into four self-contained counties, each free to experiment with governance, economy and lifestyle. These 'live laboratories' interrogate the cultural and ethical impact of existing and new technologies and how they alter the way we live.

Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby use elements of industrial design, architecture, politics, science and sociology to provoke debate around the power and potential of design. UmK challenges assumptions about how products and services are made and used, through reinterpretations of the car and other transport systems."

CID Grand Hornu | Futur Archaïque

CID Grand Hornu | Futur Archaïque | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Hornu | 25.01.2015 - 19.04.2015

"The Futur archaïque exhibition presents the connection that currently exists between the immediate, short-term or even distant future and the past, the archaic – in the sense of returning to fundamental principles, (arkhē in Greek means beginning). It is illustrated here from the perspective of design. The exhibition highlights how young as well as not-so-young designers create objects that reveal our roots, which have been given a rough ride by modernity. For all its progress, reason and rationalisation, over time this same modernity has abandoned by the wayside the intrinsic value of objects. Their very essence! In some way, design has been emptied of its sense or even its senses."

Het Noordbrabants Museum | Design from the Country of the Potato Eaters - Designers meet Van Gogh | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

’s-Hertogenbosch | 24.01.2015 - 26.04.2015

"As well as being Van Gogh country, Brabant is also an important international centre for design, whether it's spatial and industrial or fashion and food. For the Van Gogh year of inspiration, Yksi Ontwerp selected a number of exceptional projects specially for Het Noordbrabants Museum. These projects are from promising new talent as well as top designers like Maarten Baas, Studio Job and Piet Hein Eek.

The works presented all have a connection with Van Gogh's themes from his Brabant period: simplicity, nature and farmland. The combination of contemporary design and eternal values has been the inspiration for an exciting exhibition of objects which continue to amaze. This exhibition forms part of the theme year Van Gogh 125 years of inspiration."

Triennale di Milano | Italian Design Icons

Triennale di Milano | Italian Design Icons | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Milano | 04.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"Triennale Design Museum presents in the CreativeSet space a group of icons from the permanent Collection of the Museum, enriched by a selection by Italian Design Masters, asked to indicate the essential and indispensable works for them in the history of Italian design.

Silvana Annicchiarico, director of the Triennale Design Museum, talks about the project: "What is left . What resists time and modes, which goes beyond trends and schools , which stabilizes in perception and settle as a ' classic ' imaginary. In a mutant museum, that changes each year exhibition design and selections , and tells the story of Italian design proposing whenever objects , projects, and different artifacts , could not miss a section in some way ' different ' : less mutant and more permanent ."

Triennale di Milano | VII Triennale Design Museum - Italian Design Beyond the Crisis Autarky, Austerity, Autonomy

Triennale di Milano | VII Triennale Design Museum - Italian Design Beyond the Crisis Autarky, Austerity, Autonomy | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Milano | 04.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"The seventh edition of the Triennale Design Museum focuses its attention on the topic of self-production differently declined and approached in three crucial periods in history: the thirties, the seventies and the zero years.

The idea at the base of the design is that the years of economic crisis could be considered particularly favorable to the stimulus of design creativity: from the origins of Italian design in the thirties, when Italian great designers have made exemplary works, to production districts (born in the seventies in small geographic areas between wealth of knowledge and excellence, based on local traditions and direct availability of raw materials) until the cutting edge forms of production and autonomy."

Boston | 17.04.2014 - 22.02.2015

"Design drawings are among the hidden treasures of the MFA’s collection, and this exhibition displays nearly 30 works on paper, each representing a different artist, architect, or designer in an alphabet of design from the 16th through the 20th centuries. A is for Ashbee: a design for a ring by the Arts and Crafts designer and social reformer C. R. Ashbee; L is for La Farge: a design for stained glass by the artist and designer John La Farge; and R is for Rossi: an architectural model by the renowned 20th-century Italian architect Aldo Rossi. The surprising juxtaposition of unrelated but visually compelling designs for architecture, theater, stained glass, furniture, jewelry and silver, and textiles—many of which are rarely, if ever, on view—presents an opportunity for visitors to engage with questions surrounding design, from technical to artistic."

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt | German Pop

Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt | German Pop | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Frankfurt | 06.11.2014 - 08.02.2015

"In Great Britain and the United States, the 1960s brought forth a cultural movement that would have an impact worldwide. Its universal claim to popularity is already evident in its name – the movement ostensibly fit for the masses was called “Pop Art.” Artists such as Christa Dichgans, Sigmar Polke, Manfred Kuttner, Konrad Klapheck, and Peter Roehr developed a specifically West German version of Pop Art that went beyond mere “coca-colonization.” They examined the banalities of everyday life in Germany, ironizing its narrow-minded tastes and typically German “gemütlichkeit.” As a kind of archeological investigation of the 1960s and early 1970s, the exhibition at the SCHIRN will take a closer look at the artistic activities that constituted “German Pop.”"

Thus, with reference to empty buildings, the series "Imaginary Spaces" discusses the boundary between reality and imagination, using different angles and unusual views. New perspectives, forgotten spaces and the imaginary world are the three pillars of his work, highlighting the infinite capacity of suggestion of anonymous architecture."

Bauhaus-Archiv | Sensing the Future. László Moholy-Nagy, the Media and the Arts | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Berlin | 08.10.2014 - 02.02.2015

"In his artistic work and experimental use of new media, the avant-gardist and Bauhaus teacher László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) overstepped the boundaries of the conventional view of art. His methods were marked by interdisciplinary approaches, while at the same time fundamentally questioning the traditional perception of art. His approach was thus far ahead of his time and was already raising issues that are still relevant today. Moholy-Nagy’s many-faceted media art as well as works by contemporary artists have an immediate effect on the viewer’s various senses and thus conveys new approaches to art for people either with or without sensory impairments."

Kent State University Museum | Entangled: Fiber to Felt to Fashion

Kent State University Museum | Entangled: Fiber to Felt to Fashion | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Kent | 08.05.2014 - 15.02.2015

"Felt is legendary as one of the oldest materials from which garments have been made. Created primarily of wool fibers that have been manipulated with pressure and moisture so that the fibers interlock, traditional felt is non-woven. Although wool is not the only fiber that can be felted, the physical properties of wool fibers felt more easily to form a strong bond. In this exhibition the majority of pieces are made in the nuno felting technique developed by Australian Polly Stirling in the early 1990s. [...] Our focus in this exhibit is the use of felt in elegant garments, using both seamless and sewn felt techniques, and showcasing both sheer elegance and sturdy construction."

Lisbon | 10.10.2014 - 08.02.2015

"The exhibition NAKED SHAPES displays 200 aluminium household objects, home appliances, furniture, and toys manufactured in Japan between 1910 and 1960. Aluminium was considered the modern material of the twentieth century and had its heyday during World War II. Early in the war, all materials were quickly exhausted, and aluminium became the material of choice for the manufacture of warplanes, weapons and naval fleet. This material was easily workable, recycled and transformed.
For 50 years, these objects were conceived by anonymous designers and produced by artisans in small workshops. After the war, Japan carries out the reconstruction and grows wealthy, and the materials once missing replaced aluminium, and so did plastic. The objects on display were often enamelled, although here they are presented stripped of their decoration and painting, thus highlighting their raw material and basic functions."

This was a commontechnique in Japan since de late eighteenth century to mid-twentieth century. Boro textilesspread throughout Japan for about 200 years, since its social and economic structureremained unchanged until the early twentieth century.
These pieces were seldom in cotton, as this material was intended to wealthier classes.Boro pieces were woven from indigenous plants like hemp, ramie, paper mulberry, wisteriaand nettle. The peasants would buy scraps of cloth and used clothes and transform theminto unique Japanese pieces to obtain more resistant textiles."
