From 2004 until 2012 The Stedelijk Museum was undergoing a renovation. The building was extended with an extra wing, this wing is also known as 'The Bathtub'.
Love quirky design and furniture with the wow-factor? This is the exhibition for you! 'From Thonet to 'Dutch Design': 125 Years of Living' is a brand-new exhibition at Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum. The exhibition traces the artistic, cultural, and technological elements that have defined some of the most iconic and influential designs of the last century. From an original Thonet bench – one of the oldest items in the collection – to the acclaimed designs of the Wiener Werkstätte, plus the Amsterdam School, Scandinavian design, the advent of plastics in the ‘60s, and not forgetting the colorful Italian Memphis Group of the ‘80s, and the successful school of Dutch design, which emerged in the ‘90s, the exhibition runs the gamut of glamorous, funk furniture, and how various types of design have shaped the world we live in. The exhibition also focuses on topical subjects like sustainability in contemporary design, open-access design, children's design, women in design, and how this world has adapted and evolved in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
