Exhibition: Designprocesser – Witnessing the creative process behind design objects from A to Z

Swedish design makes another trip to Paris with this exhibition by the Stockholm Nationalmuseum from 2018-2019, whose purpose is to show the stages of collaboration between designers and manufacturers,from idea to finished object. In order to do so, the museum has chosen to take example on the creation of the NM& collection, conceived for its new restaurant (a space created for the renovation of the Nationalmuseum and its reopening in October 2018).

The interior design and the collection of objects in the restaurant were created by a group of designers: Matti Klenell, in collaboration with the ceramist and glass designer Carina Seth Andersson, interior designers Gabriella Gustafson (TAF) and Mattias Ståhlbom (TAF), and finally, graphic designer and illustrator Stina Löfgren. A collaborative process that generated about 80 new objects by 30 different creators.

Whether for furniture, tableware or lamps, all the different stages of creation are shown for about twenty objects, helping the viewer understand the evolution of the design as well as the steps to go from prototype to series manufacturing.

Thanks to work documents, sketches, films and works-in-progress contextualising the transformation of matter into object, visitors are invited to reflect on the way in which the objects that surround them are thought and made.

From September 8th to October 27th 2019.
Admission free.

In collaboration with Nationalmuseum.

Part of Swedish Design Moves Paris, organised in collaboration with Business Sweden, the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in France, the Swedish Embassy in France and Visit Sweden. #SwedishMovesParis
