limited/unlimited one hundred years of dutch design

limited/unlimited – one hundred years of dutch design

june 14 – october 12, 2008 museum boijmans van beuningen, rotterdam

when you think of dutch design, its contemporary designers springs to mind: droog, marcel wanders, hella jongerius and others. however there is much more to dutch design both contemporary and historical. the new exhibition ‘limited/unlimited’ being exhibited in rotterdam’s museum boijmans van beuningen examines the past one hundred years of dutch design. the show covers furniture of course, but also other key fields such as graphic design, product design, transportation and more. the show looks at some of the key pieces which emerged from the small country during each decade. this will include both unique objects and products of mass production. the exhibition was prompted by the publication of the museum’s curator mienke simon thomas’ new book ‘dutch design. a cultural history’.
