On 25 April 1985, Frankfurt’s Museum Angewandte Kunst (at the time still called the Museum für Kunsthandwerk) moved into the Richard Meier building in Schaumainkai 17.
On the occasion of its thirtieth year in these quarters, the museum is presenting a cabinet exhibition entitled Richard Meier: A Style Room, which is more than a design show. In it, visitors can learn what historical references the architect drew on for his plans: what early twentieth-century design examples did he look to for orientation, and what cultural contexts of the 1980s underscore his approach? Look at Thonet’s bentwood chair and a chair by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
