October 26, 2001-January 12, 2002
Location: Palevsky Design Pavilion
Curator: Alex Ward
conscious, simple - consciously, simple: This visiting exhibition presents an alternative model of design strategies that emerged in Germany in the mid-1980s: deliberate simplicity, an emphasis on low-cost materials and production methods, and moral and aesthetic correctness along with a certain sensuousness and joie-de-vivre.
