"Design of Our Time opens series of decorative arts exhibitons"
2001-02-25 until 2001-05-13
Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
Houston, TX, USA

Over the past decade, the field of design has changed dramatically. Public awareness of design is increasing, drawing new talent to the field. Advances in technology and the increased availability of fine design in the marketplace have added to the creative energy of the 1990s.

This heightened visibility challenges international designers to create useful objects that both respond to cultural needs and provide stylish solutions for modern living. Design of Our Time celebrates this period of dynamic change. The exhibition showcases highly individual forms that often incorporate fluid shapes and eye-catching coloróforms that are not bound by traditional ideas of function. Furniture, lighting, and other objects in the exhibition are drawn primarily from the museumís collection, and most are on view for the first time.
