Exhibition — May 2020 - April 2021

September 2020 marks the 125th anniversary of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. And for almost 125 years, the museum has exhibited furniture and other designs for the interior.

The museum began actively collecting interior design in 1934 and today boasts a world-class collection. This show features landmarks of design history interwoven with the exhibition and collection history of the Stedelijk.
Acclaimed designs by the Thonet brothers, Gerrit Rietveld, Charlotte Perriand, Verner Panton, Richard Hutten, Hella Jongerius and others alternate with lesser known or previously unexhibited pieces by Bertha Bake, the Wiener Werkstätte, Lambertus Zwiers, Nanna Ditzel and Aldo van den Nieuwelaar. The presentation will celebrate familiar designs and also unlock hidden gems.
