mostra Living in a Box: Design and Comics

Schaudepot | Vitra Design Museum | Charles-Eames-Str. 2 | Weil am Rhein (D)

«With the exhibition Living in a Box: Design and Comics at the Vitra Schaudepot, the Vitra Design Museum is taking a fresh look at its collection by exploring the world of comics and their relationship to design. Iconic furniture features prominently in comics such as The Adventures of Tintin, Peanuts and Diabolik, while at the same time countless designers have taken inspiration from comics to create pieces informed by stories of superhuman strength, lightning speed and razor-sharp irony. The exhibition deals with both of these tendencies in the museum’s first-ever study of the comics medium. Through the illustrated world of the comic strip, comic book and graphic novel, objects from the museum’s collection jump off the page and come to life».
