The Museum of Architecture and Design presents the exhibition 'Silent
Revolutions', a selection of design that marks the first two decades of
this young European country.
Black Cherry Lamp
by Nika Zupanc - for La Femme et la Maison by Nika Zupanc, 2010
Rather than showing a sweeping overall view the show focuses on outstanding individual cases. The selected design exhibits embody the passion and obsession of individual artists, the drive, innovative development and high-quality production, ranging from the filigree turn-tables by Franc Kuzma and the seductive Black Cherry Lamps by designer Nika Zupanc to Seaway’s Greenline 33 Hybrid, the world’s first large hybrid boat, and Trimo’s Qbiss One with ArtMe modular façade systems.
by Janez Suhadolc, 1991
The exhibition also presents certain key productions from the country’s largest actors in the industry, including Elan's revolutionary series of WaveFlex skis designed in cooperation with Gigodesign studio, Alpina's Racing Elite cross-country ski boots developed in cooperation with Jure Miklavc studio, and Gorenje's Simplicity home appliance line by Gorenje Design Studio.
