We are so excited to be working with the Peabody Essex Museum on designing the Opening Party for: California Design, 1930-1965: Living in a Modern Way (see the Exhibit description below). Here is a sneak preview of what’s to come – we have gathered some pretty cool curiousities – Thanks Home Goods, Jonathan Adler + Trina Turk – to help set the tone. Be sure to check out AFTER the Party in a couple of weeks to see the final set-up. I, for one, am SUPER excited to see this come to life.
On view March 29, 2014 to July 6, 2014
Located in the: Special Exhibition Galleries
More than 200 examples of mid-century modern design reveal the distinctive role California had in shaping material culture from 1930-1965. Featuring a diverse array of furniture, textiles, fashion, industrial and graphic design, ceramics, jewelry, metalwork, film and architecture, this exhibition celebrates the innovation and pervasiveness of mid-century modern design. The work of legendary designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, and Greta Magnusson Grossman are explored, as is the sociological and geographical context which gave rise to this unprecedented design movement. Organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), this exhibition is the first major study of California mid-century modern design.
