Design Since 1989

Thirty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall (1989), the exhibition After the Wall: Design since 1989 presents design from the past three decades. The starting point is the influence of significant technological, cultural and socio-political developments, such as pollution, climate change, computers and mobile phones, consumer awareness, recycling and exploitation of raw materials. The exhibition juxtaposes iconic product design and graphic design with works by leading furniture designers and retailers, including Jasper Morrison, Philippe Starck, Hella Jongerius, Muji, and IKEA, as well as up-and-coming contemporary designers.
