Home Stories: 100 Years, 20 Visionary Interiors
The exhibition aims to reopen the conversation about the contemporary private interior and its evolution
In a captivating narrative leading visitors backwards in time, the exhibition highlights important societal, political, urban, and technical shifts that have shaped the design and the use of the Western interior over the last 100 years.
With works by outstanding designers, architects, and artists, “Home Stories” will reflect on how interior design has always been inspired, enriched, and shaped by other disciplines, including not only architecture and product design, but also the fine arts and stage design. The exhibition is organized around 20 iconic interiors by architects such as Adolf Loos, Finn Juhl, Lina Bo Bardi, and Assemble; artists like Andy Warhol or Cecil Beaton, as well as interior designer Elsie de Wolfe.
Contrasting the repetitive DIY and Instagram-inspired look of modern Western living that often includes the same design icons, colour palettes, and furniture arrangements, the exhibition constitutes a compelling sensorial journey through the recent history of the domestic sphere, including models, drawings, furniture, films, and other media.
