Stedelijk Museum’s-Hertogenbosch changed its name to Design Museum Den Bosch. We look beyond design. We show the influence of design on our daily lives, tell the stories behind it. We highlight the cultural meaning of design in the past, today and the future.
Thijs Wolzak made the photographic series Human Interior for the NRC Handelsblad newspaper. Two questions from the captions that many hundreds of thousands of readers must have pondered were: ‘How many Ikea products do you own?’ and ‘What would you save from a fire?’
A design exhibition about our food. Food seduces with beautiful images and stories. In the divide between production and consumption, the role of designers is becoming increasingly important. Their attractive designs and seductive stories atone the consumer with the origins of our food.
Jean Cocteau (1889 – 1963) had a remarkable public life that played out in close proximity to famous figures such as Guillaume Apollinaire, Coco Chanel, Sergei Diaghilev, Edith Piaf and his close friend Pablo Picasso. Design Museum Den Bosch will present the first Jean Cocteau retrospective in the Netherlands.
From the 1960s on, the Netherlands aspired to modernity. This desire was characterised by a shared love of geometric design and the use of white, black and grey. The exhibition consists of various important moments and situations from the period and will provide a comprehensive overview of its architecture, product and graphic design, fashion and art.
