Nomadic Furniture 3.0: New Liberated Living

Nomadic Furniture 30 - New Liberated Living

 

Nomadic Furniture 3.0 offers a comprehensive overview of contemporary DIY furniture culture while using numerous historical references and examples to also present a clear picture of the developmental history of the DIY movement from its nascence in the early 20th century to the present Web 2.0 culture. With its emphasis on the field of furniture design, the exhibition is the first to examine this movement situated on the threshold between the subcultural and the mainstream including a look at its historical context: as early as the first half of the 20th century, home-built furniture came to be regarded as a suitable approach for socially conscious and (since the late 1960s) ecologically sustainable design. The exhibition is on view at the MAK Center through October 6, 2013.
