Design for the Modern Child
May 25, 2013 - October 14, 2013
This exhibition will feature some of the latest furniture, toys, tableware, wallpaper, and textiles designed internationally in Australia, Asia, Europe, Great Britain, and the United States, along with classics from the Museum’s design collection. A number of these objects will make their American debut in the exhibition, from Marie-Louise Groot Kormelink’s Dutch rowhouse wardrobes and a contemporary-style dollhouse, to Josefina Bentzen and Charlotte Skak’s Kitchen Kids, a series of prototype Danish kitchen tools for children that includes a vegetable peeler, grater, mixing bottle, knife, chopping board, and protective mittens. Also making its premiere appearance will be a custom-built, sustainable Cardboard Cubby House—a towering playhouse designed by Australian architects Bennett and Trimble for the Perelman Building’s Skylit Atrium that small visitors can explore and learn to build themselves from plans provided by the architects.



This exhibition is part of Art Splash, a suite of five family-friendly exhibitions, interactive art and play zones, and daily family programs.
