Architecture and design as the basic commodities of life
30 May 2012 - 6 January 2013
ArkDes (formerly the Museum of Architecture) celebrates 50 years with the anniversary exhibition Livsmedel – the importance of form, design and architecture in our everyday lives.
A reproduction of a food shop featuring tidbits in the area of architecture, form and design – means for life. The idea is to stimulate the visitor’s thoughts about why our physical environment looks as it does, how architecture, form and design reflect society’s development and affect and shape our lives every day.
The visitor can listen to Nisse Strinning, creator of the String bookshelf, talk about his work on design or view lamps and chairs designed by Gunnar Asplund. Also on display are a Lego house designed and built by former Minister for Housing Birgit Friggebo 1988 and objects and photos of retail environments such as PUB, KF, NK and Domus.
