Bent wood bench, green plastic chair, red chair, and black table from the Stedelijk Museum collection

The Stedelijk presents an extensive selection of design from its world-class collection. The show features over 300 objects that over the past 125 years—were landmarks of design innovation and excellence. Visitors are invited to explore design history, from a Thonet bench, one of the oldest pieces in the collection, to acclaimed designs by the Wiener Werkstätte, the Amsterdam School, Scandinavian design, the advent of plastics in the ‘60s, the colourful Italian Memphis designs of the ‘80s, and the successful school of Dutch design, which emerged in the ‘90s.

The show spotlights work by renowned and ground-breaking designers such as Michael Thonet, Gerrit Rietveld, Charlotte Perriand, Verner Panton, Ettore Sottsass, Hella Jongerius, Marcel Wanders, and Patrick Jouin. Also highlighted are current topics such as sustainability and the impact of the corona crisis on the Dutch design world.
