MoDiP has been closed over the summer whilst we moved into our new location. We are now open and have a great exhibition for you to visit.
Spotlight on... 2
This is the second in a series of exhibitions that puts the spotlight on
manufacturers and designers who embrace plastics as a material of
Mass produced anonymous plastic products flood the market. Many have
no maker or designer’s name attached, the result being that the popular
perception of such objects is that they are of low cost and low quality.
However, in stark contrast, many designers and companies have exploited
this versatile material, used it to great effect, and are proud to put
their names to it. As materials and manufacturing technologies have
evolved, designers have begun to realise the possibilities it offers and
have created objects that have come to be regarded as design icons. Consequently, many objects made from plastics materials are now to be
found in major museum collections across the world and, although
produced in quantity, such objects are held in high regard.
In this exhibition, we explore the works of designers such as Zaha
Hadid and Verner Panton, and manufacturing companies including Kartell
We hope you enjoy your visit.
