Design is everywhere and affects us all. From morning to night, day after day. At the Röhsska Museum, we bring together things, people and perspectives from different times, to challenge our notions of design and society.
Dancing figurines, fastidiously ornamented furniture feet and full period interiors. Welcome to 18th-Century Design & Craft, the new permanent exhibition at the Röhsska Museum of Design and Craft.
We have selected some objects from our collections that in different ways show what the Röhsska Museum is and would like to be.
The Röhsska Museum’s new permanent collection display of applied arts and crafts from Asia reveals the stories and inspirations between the Nordic countries and East Asia.
23 OCTOBER - 28 AUGUST
Just as ideas, material and products migrate, so too do objects. The exhibition Migration reveals the multiple paths travelled by items before ending up in the museum collection.
The Röhsska Museum’s collection includes more than 500 chairs. In the open storage repository, visitors can peruse a selection that spans more than 300 years. The chair is an inherently interesting design object that is generally expected to be comfortable, practical and aesthetically pleasing.
