  • Color and Comfort: Swedish Modern Design

    March 12, 2019 – February 9, 2020

About the Event:

Iconic work by Josef Frank is shown together with work by artisans such as Viola Gråsten, sisters Gocken and Lisbet Jobs, Stig Lindberg, Sven Markelius, and Elizabeth Ulrick in an exhibition featuring themes of Nature and Pattern, Color and Contrast, Nostalgia for the Past, and Finding Modernity. This dynamic installation explores the idea of comfort and affordability in the modern Swedish home both before and after World War II. The introduction of bold, colorful patterning during the 1920s, the national nostalgia for Swedish cultural heritage during the 1930s, and the sparse lines of abstraction in the 1950s and ’60s come together to reveal a particularly Swedish sensibility in modern design—one that has often been used to define a broader modern Scandinavian style. A project developed by graduate students in art history and museum studies at Case Western Reserve University, this exhibition features new research into this fascinating world of organic design to delight the eye and define mid-century modern for a new generation.   Supporting Sponsor: Mrs. David Seidenfeld
