Exhibition - Peter Ghyczy, 50 years of functionalism

From 07/02/2018 to 11/03/2018 - CPI : 06/02/2018

Peter Ghyczy. 50 Years of Functionalism presents a captivating retrospective on Peter Ghyczy’s iconic furniture and industrial objects that form an integral part of the design history of the second half of the 20th century. Central to the exhibition is the Garden Egg Chair, designed by Peter Ghyzcy in 1968. At that time, this design icon was designed as a study to explore a new material, polyurethane, which came to dominate the trends in design and furniture making in the 1970s. Peter Ghyczy’s personal motivation was to make a comfortable outdoor chair that would always feature a dry seat come rain or shine. Since then the Garden Egg Chair has become an icon of space design featured in permanent collections of renowned museums worldwide, including the V&A Museum (UK), The Wende Museum and the Design Museum Holon. Alongside the Garden Egg Chair, Peter Ghyczy designed many more iconic furniture objects that are part of the design history of the second half of the 20th century, including his patented clamping technique for glass and metal. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Garden Egg chair, the ADAM - Brussels Design Museum proudly presents the first solo exhibition on Peter Ghyczy to map his design innovations, spanning five decades, giving behind-the-scenes insights into the life and oeuvre of this prolific designer. Curated by Kunty Moureau, the exhibition will feature curated wall displays, a video installation and a full-scale recreation of Peter Ghyczy’s atelier.
