Looking Forward/Looking Back

Looking Forward/Looking Back will display objects from the past 100 years that were acquired in order to expand the breadth of the collection and augment the Museum’s contemporary holdings. The exhibition will feature significant works by renowned 20th century designers, including Paul Frankl, René Herbst, Herbert Matter and Philippe Starck. The works will be arranged in rough chronological order, enabling visitors to observe shifts in design ethos across a range of mediums, from furniture to textiles to graphic design. Looking Forward/Looking Back is organized by the museum’s curatorial team of Susan Brown and Nurit Einik.
