Pop Art Design

By Stephanie Rebick | Posted on October 19th, 2012

The Vitra Design Museum in Germany puts on some of the best broad-based survey exhibitions tracing the history of design in the world. With a remarkable collection that spans the modern masters all the way to contemporary innovators, the Vitra is a rare gem and definitely a must-visit whenever you find yourself in Germany. Their latest exhibition, Pop Art Design, is the first comprehensive look at the relationship between the Pop Art movement and design. The exhibition seeks to place work by well-known Pop artists such as Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Richard Hamilton, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg in dialogue with design objects, by the likes of Charles Eames and Ettore Sottsass, and other visual culture artefacts like magazine and album covers, making the case that design played an integral role in the development of Pop Art. With incredible objects and works of art, Pop Art Design, promises to be a remarkable exhibition that alters how we view the Pop Art movement.
