BEAUTY - Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial

Design Triennial, Cooper Hewitt, New York, USA.


From February 12, 2016 until August 21, 2016
The fifth instalment of the museum’s popular contemporary design exhibition series, Beauty, celebrates design as a creative endeavour that engages the mind, body, and senses. With a focus on aesthetic innovation, more than 250 works by 62 designers from around the globe are featured, organised around seven themes: extravagant, intricate, ethereal, transgressive, emergent, elemental, and transformative. With projects ranging from experimental prototypes and interactive games to fashion ensembles and architectural interventions, these are works of astonishing form and surprising function from the most outstanding voices of the global design scene.
