Cooper-Hewitt: Pioneers of Change: Towards a New Notion of Luxury


Since the economic downfall the notion of luxury has come under attack. Pioneers of Change does not apply the luxury to an ethos of riches as such but to qualities now hard to come by, such as space, fresh air, respect, care, silence, slowness and time. Can we reach a new notion of luxury: a luxury of content and experience over luxury of expensive materials and name and fame of brands and designers? Moderator: Matilda McQuaid, Deputy Curatorial Director and Head of Textiles, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum Panelists:
