MUDAC | Wunderkammer - Carte blanche to graphic designer Marian Bantjes

MUDAC | Wunderkammer - Carte blanche to graphic designer Marian Bantjes | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Lausanne | 02.07.2014 - 05.10.2014

"Marian Bantjes is a graphic designer, typographer, illustrator and blogger. Working from a small island near Vancouver, Canada, she has developed a very personal graphical style combining natural materials such as flowers, pasta and sugar with the most advanced computer techniques. Her work, a mixture of tradition, style and technology, is highly unusual and personal, distancing itself from international utilitarian graphic design through its treatment of unfamiliar, generally non-commercial subjects, strongly influenced by contemporary experimental graphic design."

MAD Museum | NYC Makers: The MAD Biennial | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

New York | 01.07.2014

"The 21st-century maker has flattened traditional hierarchies and escaped rigid categories of production through post-disciplinary practices and the innovative application of skill and technique. NYC Makers presents a sweeping cross-section of the cultural production of these inventive individuals, living and working within a single city. Makers were nominated by a pool of over 300  New York City-based cultural leaders and civic figures from a range of trades and disciplines, including museum curators, choreographers, academics, chefs, musicians, and journalists, with final participants selected by a jury led by Adamson and exhibition curator Jake Yuzna. From world-renowned cultural leaders to emergent enfants terribles, every maker selected demonstrates the highest level of skill in their respective field, whether by fabricating furniture or fashion; creating artworks, films, and architecture; inventing new possibilities for food; or reshaping educational and social gatherings."

Materfad | Smart Flexibility : Advanced Materials and Technologies

Materfad | Smart Flexibility : Advanced Materials and Technologies | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Barcelona | 25.06.2014 - 30.11.2014

"An international overview of I+D projects about flexible and active materials. The “Smart Flexibility: Advanced Materials and Technologies” exhibition seeks to explore the current capabilities provided by certain structures and materials to raise awareness and adapt architecture to its environment.

From this perspective the exhibition is situated on the borderline between matter and structure, investigating the flexibility and intrinsic reactivity of specific materials and advanced technologies.
In order to do so, this event should not only bring together architects, designers and construction engineers but also creators from other sectors (sports, fashion, automotive, etc.), whose projects and products are focused on smart flexibility."

Wolfsonian-FIU | I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America

Wolfsonian-FIU | I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Miami Beach | 27.06.2014 - 28.09.2014

"The first major exploration of the theater and industrial designer whom the New York Times dubbed “the Leonardo da Vinci of the 20th century.”

A visionary who was equally comfortable in the realms of fact and fiction, Norman Bel Geddes (1893–1958) played a significant role in the 1920s and '30s, shaping not only modern America but also the nation’s image of itself as innovator and leader into the future. Bel Geddes most famously expressed his dynamic vision of this American future—streamlined, technocratic, and optimistic—with his unforgettable Futurama exhibition at the 1939–40 New York World’s Fair. Bringing together some 200 never-before-seen drawings, models, photographs and films of theater sets and costumes, housing projects and appliances, airplanes and automobiles, the exhibition underscores that Bel Geddes sought nothing less the transformation of American society through design."

Form/Design Center | The Future is Handmade | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Malmö | 05.06.2014 - 31.08.2014

"The design exhibition The Future is Handmade captures the re-entry of craft into the world of design and highlights this interesting paradigm shift by showing over 40 design objects within the fields of fashion, product, furniture and graphic design at Malmö’s Form/Design Center.

Today, craft is one of the key driving forces in the design world and many prominent young designers approach traditional craft in their work – whether it is a method or a material – and often combine it with an interesting, conceptual approach. 'This makes The Future is Handmade one of the most interesting design exhibitions in Sweden over the last decade,' says curator Petra Lilja."

Royal Ontario Museum | Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting

Royal Ontario Museum | Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Toronto | 21.06.2014 - 25.01.2015

"Fashion Follows Form: Designs for Sitting invites you to think critically about the relationship between function and fashion in our daily lives. The history of western fashion is a sequence of changing shapes that often favours form over function and comfort. IZAdaptive (2009-present), by Canadian designer Izzy Camilleri, is a revolutionary line of fashionable and functional clothing for the growing demographic of men and women who use wheelchairs. The exhibit contextualizes these innovative garments within Camilleri’s oeuvre and historical 18th-19th century fashions also designed for a seated, L-shaped frame."

During her unprecedented 43 years at Paramount Pictures, Edith Head designed many of the iconic costumes worn by Barbara Stanwyck, Loretta Young, Betty Hutton, Veronica Lake, Joan Fontaine and Dorothy Lamour—to name just a few. Her ability to hide figure flaws made her the favored designer of many actresses."

Cincinnati | 14.06.2014 - 07.09.2014

"Cincinnati was not only a center for art pottery and furniture; it was also a significant hub for the production and trade of luxury silver wares. In the years prior to 1850, Cincinnati boasted the largest concentration of silversmiths, jewelers, watch and clockmakers in the Midwest. This exhibition will showcase 150 to 200 objects, ranging from elegantly wrought soup tureens to tea sets that represent the city’s earliest activities in the trade (about 1795) through the Art Deco period.

Grand Hornu Images | Tranches de vie. Sofie Lachaert + Luc d’Hanis

Grand Hornu Images | Tranches de vie. Sofie Lachaert + Luc d’Hanis | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Hornu | 27.04.2014 - 17.08.2014

For designers duo Sofie Lachaert and Luc d’Hanis, life and work are inextricably intertwined.

They have been collaborating now for over 20 years on an intriguing oeuvre involving objects, furniture and situation-oriented installations whereby the boundaries between applied art, craft and design are both questioned and crossed. Each project is a joint project, each work the result of the symbiosis between these two designers.

With this exhibition, the artist duo is bringing the environment into the museum, and is constructing a street, a terrace of workers’ houses, inside the ‘Magasin aux Foins’ exhibition hall. The environment is, as it were, the true subject of the exhibition, the scenography and a work in itself, a gesamtkunstwerk that unites both existing and new work.

The House of Fabergé was also associated with the last days of the Russian imperial family and a tragic chapter of history at the start of the twentieth century. The exhibition comprises 240 objects from this exceptional collection, including four of the forty-three remaining famous Easter eggs commissioned by the Romanovs."

Philadelphia Museum of Art | The Main Dish | design exhibitions | Scoop.it

Philadelphia | 01.07.2014 - 28.09.2014

"One of the most common assumptions about the kitchen is that it is a woman’s space. With this in mind, The Main Dish looks at how modern and contemporary kitchenware reflects attributes of the model homemaker. Like the objects that adorn our kitchen countertops and dinner tables, the homemaker is expected to offer a pleasing appearance and handle tasks with ease, all while keeping pace with ever-changing fashions. Drawn largely from the Museum’s notable collection of modern and contemporary design, this exhibition encourages visitors to ask questions about the seemingly inventive and useful features of everyday household items."

Malmö | 05.06.2014 - 24.08.2014

"The Baltic Exhibition in Malmö in 1914 left its mark on many different levels. One was the personal inheritance of a piece of furniture exhibited by master cabinet maker H. N. Nordén, and used and preserved within the family during the 100 years that have passed.

Designer Stefan Borselius exhibits his great grandfather’s furniture and deliberates over it in time for its 100th anniversary. How did heritage, talent and circumstance affect his choice of profession; what is the connection to the furniture, lamps and textiles he designs today?"

Grand Rapids, Michigan | 18.05.2014 - 24.08.2014

"When Michigan’s industry and design intertwined, Michigan became an epicenter of modern design, with visionaries statewide turning from the simple generation of products to design that rippled throughout the country. Detroit’s automobile manufacturers styled automobiles synonymous with the American dream. The state’s furniture designers revolutionized the look of the American office and home. Michigan architects Albert Kahn, Eero Saarinen, and Minoru Yamasaki defined an era.
