Friedman Benda, New York, celebrates 10 years of presenting and fostering high quality design – bringing visions and ideas of well known names of the field like Faye Toogood or Marcel Wanders or Ron Arad closer to the audience.
With „dna10“ Benda aims to look ahead by taking stock of the past ten years of projects and exhibitions. Reflecting on a decades’ worth of innovation, this survey will shine a light onto the beautiful chaos that is contemporary design.
The exhibition includes work from twenty-one designers and artists that span five continents and multiple generations including Ron Arad, Andrea Branzi, Humberto and Fernando Campana, Wendell Castle, Byung Hoon Choi, Paul Cocksedge, Andile Dyalvane, Front Design, gt2P, Misha Kahn, Shiro Kuramata, Joris Laarman, Forrest Myers, nendo, Gerrit Rietveld, Christopher Schanck, Adam Silverman, Ettore Sottsass, Faye Toogood, Marcel Wanders, Lebbeus Woods and Tadanori Yokoo.
Featuring one distinct piece from each studio practice and looking discretely at each designer’s process is key to the show – and it highlighs their major contributions to contemporary design. Additionally, documentation in the form of drawings, sketches, videos and models will accompany the work on view.
