Design Cities - Istanbul Modern

I was fortunate to be included in the selection for a new exhibition called design citites which starts in the Istanbul Modern before moving to London's Design museum in September.





Some information on the exhibition:

This exhibition, curated by Deyan Sudjic, looks at the history of design from the mid-19th century through to the present. It stresses the conjunction of urban centers with great designers and traces how these have moved around the world until the present.

This exhibition will give the opportunity to look at the masters of modern and contemporary design through their sketches, drawings, models, objects and furniture that they have designed and created.

Highlights of the exhibition include work by the following:

London: Owen Jones, William Morris; Vienna: Joseph Hoffmann, Adolf Loos, Otto Wagner; Dessau: Marcel Breuer, Mies van der Rohe, Herbert Bayer, Marianne Brandt; Paris: Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Eileen Gray, Cassandre; Milan: Achille Castiglioni, Bob Noorda, Gio Ponti, Joe Columbo, Vico Magistretti, Ettore Sottsass; Los Angeles: Charles and Ray Eames, Eero Saarinen, Eliot Noyes, Saul Bass, Harry Beroia; Tokyo: Sony Research, Yamaha research, Issey Miyake, Shiro Kuramata; London: Ron Arad, Jasper Morrison, Ross Lovegrove, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Barnbrook, Sam Hecht, David Chipperfield, Peter Savile.

İstanbul Modern’s new exhibition "Design Cities" is bringing together some of the most significant design products of the last century for the first time in this country. Seeing all these design icons in one setting will no doubt be a major inspiration for anyone that has any interest in the subject.

Deyan Sudjic writes that "The Design Museum is delighted to be working with Istanbul Modern in producing a spectacular exploration of the way in which design has shaped contemporary culture."
