‘Lightopia’ Vitra Design Museum, Germany | Fragile future

1 Apr 2014

The Vitra Design Museum in Weill am Rhein, Germany, is one of the leading design museums in the world and organizes exhibitions and events on design and architecture.

‘Lightopia’ will be the next exhibition to open on September 28th in the main building by Frank Gehry, which also features the Fragile Future 3.11 work by Ralph Nauta and Lonneke Gordijn.

Currently, new lighting technologies are bringing about profound changes in the domain of artificial lighting. This development is the subject of the Vitra Design Museum’s exhibition »Lightopia«. It is the first comprehensive presentation of lighting design, featuring examples from the realms of art, design, architecture and many other disciplines.

The primary focus of the exhibition is on works by contemporary designers and artists such as Studio Drift, Olafur Eliasson, and Troika, who illustrate the broad scope of new possibilities for designing with light and that emphazise also the archaic and emotional strengths.
