13 Jan - 26 Apr 2020 / MAKK Museum for Applied Arts and Design, An der Rechtschule, Cologne, DE
At the beginning of the 1980s, a young generation of German designers renounced the principle of ‘good form’, which, until then, had been a defining characteristic of German design. Inspired by the concepts of Memphis and Alchimia in Italy, German design, too, experienced a radical renewal. One of the protagonists was the Cologne-based collective, the Pentagon Group, founded in 1985 by Gerd Arens, Wolfgang Laubersheimer, Reinhard Müller, Ralph Sommer and Meyer Voggenreiter. The comprehensive exhibition at the MAKK will be designed by the Pentagon members, their first collective work since documenta 8.VISIT WEBSITE
