Silent Revolutions – Contemporary Design in Slovenia, Exhibition at LDF 2011

The Museum of Architecture and Design presents the exhibition SILENT REVOLUTIONS, a selection of design that marks the first two decades of this young European country. Rather than showing a sweeping overall view the show focuses on outstanding individual cases.

Organization: Museum of Architecture and Design
Curator: Maja Vardjan

The selected design exhibits embody the passion and obsession of individual artists, the drive, innovative development and high-quality production, ranging from the filigree turn-tables by Franc Kuzma and the seductive Black Cherry Lamps by designer Nika Zupanc to Seaway’s Greenline 33 Hybrid, the world’s first large hybrid boat, and Trimo’s Qbiss One with ArtMe modular façade systems. The exhibition also presents certain key productions from the country’s largest actors in the industry, including Elan’s revolutionary series of WaveFlex skis designed in cooperation with Gigodesign studio, Alpina’s Racing Elite cross-country ski boots developed in cooperation with Jure Miklavc studio, and Gorenje’s Simplicity home appliance line by Gorenje Design Studio. The exhibition that illustrates important or even turning-point moments in the history of Slovene design, albeit in terms of a new design mentality or new development trends, is accompanied with an extensive publication that does not focus only on the products and individual designers and studios, but also on clients and producers who played an important role in the implementation of these projects. This exhibition that brings together more than 25 selected works is the first extensive international presentation of Slovene product design of the last two decades. By intertwining economy and culture, together with concerted cooperation with government institutions active in the field of creative industries, the project is aimed at representing the best of Slovene production and companies and in so doing, making Slovenia more widely recognised through industrial design.
