Archives: 2015: Lightopia
16 September - 10 January 2016
Andreasgasse 7, 1070 Wien, Austria

After several venues -Germany, Belgium and France, the exhibition Lightopia - originally shown at the Vitra Design Museum in collaboration with EDP Fundaçào - is presented at the Hofmobiliendepot, the Imperial Furniture Museum in Vienna.

“Lightopia not only examines partial aspects of lighting design – such as light art or the design of luminaires. It is the first exhibition that also considers the many different facets of designing with light and establishes a connection with contemporary issues” - Jolanthe Kugler, curator of the exhibition.

On display are ground-breaking exhibits chosen from a luminaire collection that has never yet been shown in Austria, from the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein. They include creations by such designers as Wilhelm Wagenfeld, Achille Castiglioni, Gino Sarfatti and Ingo Maurer.

Lightopia features, for the first time in Austria, a Chromosaturation by Carlos Cruz-Diez.
