The Museum House by Li Edelkoort

5 October 2006 / 29 January 2007

Kunstpaviljoen, Nieuw Roden

Kunstpaviljoen in Nieuw Roden presents: The Museum House - Lidewij Edelkoort's choice.
The exhibition presents the consumer as the curator of his or her own existence
and shows the work of both promissing and established names from the international design world.

We are living and live more and more with all kinds of collections. The interior of many houses displays a variety of designs, familypieces, Ikea and Habitat products. The collections in our houses show who we are, what we like. We become the curator of our own collection and create our own 'museum house´. Everyone is free to make their own choices.

Lidewij Edelkoort's choice is inspired by the history of nature, cabinets of curiosities and the fascination for the abstract form. Designs such as the Mirror chair by Tord Boontje or the Belinda cowchair by Julia Lohmann go alongside with designs by Hella Jongerius, Frank Gehry and Ravage.
