"Nordic Design. The Response to the Bauhaus"

Period: 24th. October until 1th. March, 2020
 
Presenting the Scandinavian path to modernism, the exhibition features designs from Scandinavia’s most celebrated designers, including Peter Opsvik’s Garden, Capisco, Minimax and Tripp Trapp.
 
Curated by Dr. Tobias Hoffmann, the exhibit concludes the year of the Bauhaus centennial, and examines the reaction of the Nordic countries to German functionalism.
 
“The show presents the Scandinavian path to modernism, which involved an intense engagement with the ideas of the Bauhaus… Beside developments specific to each country, childhood, democratic design, and “hygge,” themes common to all four countries, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, will also be present.”
