While pop art is regarded as the most influential post-war art movement, and its images continue to inform our understanding of cultural identity, in design this movement has not been fully explored. It was a part of the Postmodernist Movement, but represented only that stream which was informed by the quest for subject matters in everyday life, mass media, and advertising. An exhibition at Vitra Design Museum, Pop Art Design comes to fulfill that gap, presenting the pop art in its full scope
The design is represented with objects from the early 1950s to the early 1970s, by such designers as Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, Verner Panton, Carla Scolari, Ettore Sottsass, Studio 65, and Superstudio, just to name a few of those who created pop design.
