Current & past exhibitions


The museum houses over 600 design furnitures that are always on display in the archive. In the gallery we host various specialist exhibitions that address issues relating to the contents of the collection – focusing on a particular material or technique, or a selected era, or a special exhibition on the work and creative process of a particular designer. We regularly provide seminars and workshops offering opportunities to define and discuss quality and aesthetics from various angles.
