The Exceptional Everyday: Design Post-Process
Nine Contemporary Norwegian Industrial Designers
at the Corcoran's Gallery 31
Free
Wednesday, December 21st - Sunday, January 22nd

"The Exceptional Everyday showcases the dynamic and witty work of nine contemporary Norwegian industrial designers. Each object in the show tweaks a seemingly mundane object or process and, in doing so, creates an exceptional experience. Kristine Bjaadal's Underfull Tablecloth, for example, transforms an everyday annoyance--spilled beverages on a white tablecloth--into a magical moment. The spill causes a butterfly pattern rather than a stain. While the objects in the show exemplify the rigor and attention to detail typically associated with Scandinavian design, they also embody creative collaboration with the user."
