Typology: An Ongoing Study of Everday Items

Events
On 06/12/2019
SPECIAL (DE/EN/FR)

The French design collective »Collections Typologie« researches and documents the ways in which the physical forms of anonymous archetypal products – wine bottles or wooden vegetable crates – have continually adapted to local conditions and uses over the centuries. An informal opening event will be held on the feast day of Saint Nicholas, 6th December, during which the members of Collections Typologie talk about their work. Traditional mulled wine recipes that have also evolved over generations will contribute to the festive atmosphere.

6 pm, Vitra Design Museum Gallery
