Significant Objects from the Modern Design Collection

November 26, 2002–April 11, 2004

On display is a rotating selection of approximately thirty works in all media spanning the period from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century. Examples of furniture, metalwork, silver, ceramics, and glass—by designers such as Josef Hoffmann, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Carlo Scarpa, Peter Shire, Ettore Sottsass, and Wendell Castle—are shown for their significance, both in art historical terms and in the context of the Museum's collection.
