From July 25, 2020 until March 21, 2021
Starting this summer, the Stedelijk presents an extensive selection of design from its world-class collection. The show features over 300 objects that over the past 125 years were landmarks of design innovation and excellence. Visitors are invited to explore design history, from a Thonet bench, one of the oldest pieces in the collection, to acclaimed designs by the Wiener Werkstätte, the Amsterdam School, Scandinavian design, the advent of plastics in the ‘60s, the colourful Italian Memphis designs of the ‘80s, and the successful school of Dutch design, which emerged in the ‘90s.
