Permanent event

This installation will feature important works in all media from the modern design collection by some of the most renowned designers of the 20th century. A highlight will be the 1934 History of Navigation, a magnificent and monumental reverse-painted and gilt-glass mural by Jean Dupas (French, 1882–1964), made for the first-class salon of the French ocean liner Normandie. Visitors will also have the opportunity to view a number of recent acquisitions of more contemporary works, including Gaetano Pesce’s Black Rotation Vase (2005), the Gyre Lounge Chair (2006) by Zaha Hadid, and Dusasa II (2007), in found aluminum and copper wire, by El Anatsui.
