From 8 May through 11 May, Collective 2 will present a selection of contemporary and 20th century design, with two exhibitions dedicated to Hella Jongerius and to Scandinavian design.
This year’s programming will include a special exhibition on the work of the designer Hella Jongerius, collaborations between interior designers and Collective 2 exhibitors, and a capsule exhibition that highlights the ongoing significance of Scandinavian design.
Guest curators Murray Moss and Franklin Getchell have assembled a highly personal selection of representative works by the Berlin-based designer Hella Jongerius, drawn primarily from their private collection. Each work is a complete narrative unto itself, but altogether the selection presents a broader story of the artist's exceptional ability to create a collection that expresses her idiosyncratic, playful perspective on design. Works featured in the exhibition – from her signature vessels to textiles to furniture – will demonstrate Jongerius’ skill and artistry in stitching together and making harmonious seemingly incongruous ideas, technologies and materials.
Collective 2 will host a capsule exhibition in 2014 spotlighting Scandinavian design, which plays a key role in this year’s edition. For "Collective Focus: Scandinavia", guest curator Glenn Adamson, Director of the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, will select significant vintage works from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.
