When Max Bill’s Ulm Stool meets Albrecht Dürer’s Apocalypse (1498) and Adrian Frutiger’s Univers font encounters a Balenciaga cocktail dress, when Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s puppets dance around a SBB Railways Clock, or one of Emile Gallé’s art deco vases finds a companion in one of El Lissitzky’s lithographs, then the Museum für Gestaltung is presenting some of its many treasures for the first time in a permanent exhibition — and is drawing on its unlimited resources: for around 150 years, the museum has built up a collection that today comprises over half a million objects from the arts and crafts, graphics, posters, textiles, furniture, and product design. Featuring 2000 highlights from this internationally significant collection, the newly refurbished main building invites visitors to discover the world of beautiful, useful, and curious everyday objects.
