Vitra Design Museum - German Design 1949–1989 Two Countries, One History Exhibition

Following the long closure imposed by regulations put in place to help contain the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, on March 20 the Vitra Design Museum will finally reopen its spaces to the public with "German Design 1949–1989 Two Countries, One History", the first exhibition that takes a close look at the post-war design of the two divided Germanies. The works on display cover a range of different design areas and, in some cases, are considered true icons of their reference sectors. The result is a rather interesting comparative analysis between the ideological and aesthetic differences that characterised East and West, but also of the parallels and the interrelationships between the two.
