Victoria & Albert Musuem, London
Almost 500 different objects were selected to illustrate the impact of the short lived but fertile period of Modernism, which flowered between the two World Wars. The architectural desire was to express the energy and speed of the era, to provide an interesting route through the exhibition with as many ‘surprises’ as possible, given the overwhelming number and diversity of the objects on display. The walls were increased to maximum height to give more display area to the numerous flat, two dimensional objects included. Big graphics were applied on various walls of with an ‘old’ poster/wallpaper imprint to symbolise the wealth of ideas and creativity within the Modernism movement.
