On 27/09/2019
OPENING TALK »Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design 1924 - Today«
6 pm, Fire Station, Vitra Campus

Ronan Bouroullec is one of the leading designers of our time, Wieki Somers has gained international acclaim working at the interface of design and art. At the opening of the exhibition »Objects of Desire: Surrealism and Design«, these two will join Mateo Kries, director of the Vitra Design Museum and curator of the exhibition, in a talk about design and the surreal. They will address fundamental design issues, inquiring into the roles that chance and the subconscious play in new designs. Does form invariably follow function? Where is the boundary between design and art – if it exists at all?

The talk will be held in English, admission is free.
