Representing an international field, the designers in the exhibition go beyond the conventional intention of design—to give functional objects a visually arresting reality. Their analytic, formal processes are partnered with natural phenomena, chemical, and physical forces, while time-based acts such as performance and drawing are magnified to serve as collaborators in the design.
With work by Dutch Designers: Atelier Mark Sturkenboom; Maarten Baas; Sebastian Brajkovic; Glithero; Edhv; Diana Scherer; and Jólan van der Wiel.
Also featuring work by: Auger-Loizeau; BeatWoven; Hussein Chalayan; Architects of Identity; Front; Marlène Huissoud; Humans since 1982; William Lamson; Mathieu Lehanneur; mischer’traxler studio; Jacob Olmedo; Sebastian Cox Workshop; Studio for Industrial Design; Bartholomäus Traubeck; Nicole Wermers; and Ryan Mario Yasin.
Design by Time will tour through March 2021 to the following venues: Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN; College of Wooster Art Museum, Wooster, OH; Gregg Museum of Art and Design, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC; Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, SC; and the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco, CA.
