Dimensions of Design: Miniatures Exhibition

8:00pm - 11:00pm
Alāan Artspace, Orouba Rd | العروبة,


Inline with its focus to feature both art and design, Alāan Artspace is proud to host Vitra Miniatures from 5 January to 2 February 2013. This touring collection from Vitra Design Museum presents 100 of the most important classics of modern furniture history in miniature scale and spans 188 years of seminal furniture design – covering early pioneers like Thonet, Rietveld and Frank Lloyd Wright, modern masters such as Eames, Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, contemporary classics by Frank Gehry and Marcel Wanders, and new icons like the “vegetal” chair by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. Coinciding with Vitra Miniatures, Alāan Artspace will host a panel and workshop with Saudi and regional designers, using the presented models as a jumping off point for discussion.
