On Display 02
On Display 02 takes as its theme reduced and simple design using the Modern bookcase by Rafael Horzon and a cutlery set designed by Jasper Morrison. Cutlery is an everyday item and most food cultures cannot be imagined without it. It should therefore be functional and simple when Jasper Morrison designed his cutlery for the Japanese department store, Muji. Rafael Horzon’s Modern design which by its shape can be described as being the ideal type of bookcase is also an everyday object of minimal design.Autostadt [car city] becomes design city. The idea has become a reality with the Design Display exhibition, where two different exhibits are confronted for four months in a pyramid-shaped glass case and are associated with a main theme. The aim is to stimulate dialogue and to develop an expanded design concept throughout the exhibition period. The On Display magazines (German/English) are published to accompany each exhibition. Each issue highlights a pair of exhibits in more detail and provides more background information with essays and interviews.
