"A Century of Design, Part III: 19501975"
2000-11-28 until 2001-04-01
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

This is the third in a four-part series of exhibitions surveying design in the 20th century through the presentation of significant objects in all media by major European modernist designers, drawn from the Museum's collection. The more than 50 works on view display the wide range of idioms and the artistic exploration of new materials, technologies, and aesthetics that characterized design in Europe and America from the postwar years to the postmodern era.

The exhibition follows the continuation of organic modernism in America and Scandinavia, the rise of the studio craft movement, the resurgence of Italian modernist design, and the influence of Pop Art and other avant-garde movements on design and decoration. Included are works by such leading designers as Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Verner Panton, Hans Wegner, Wharton Esherick, Joe Colombo, Piero Fornasetti, Gio Ponti, Lella and Massimo Vignelli, and Richard Sapper.
