About the exhibition
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Pinakothek der Moderne, which opened in 2002, Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum presents objects from the last 20 years.
Representative of each year is an object that addresses a development that has changed design or serves as the basis for current design movements.
It may be new manufacturing processes such as 3D printing or technical developments such as robotics or virtual reality that generate new objects or forms. Increasing importance is also being given to ecological aspects such as sustainability and fair trade, or social issues such as inclusion and diversity.
The objects reflect phenomena of the last two decades, which find their innovative and relevant creative implementation in design.
