Centraal Museum bought its first Droog Design items exactly twenty years ago. Today Central Museum owns the world’s largest museum collection of Droog Design. At the same time, the year 2017 marks 100 years of De Stijl, celebrated across the country with the theme From Mondriaan to Dutch Design. So those are two good reasons for the exhibition Vroeg Droog: the early years of Droog Design.
This autumn, Centraal Museum presents fifty top pieces from its own collection. Swing away at the exhibition on Marcel Wanders’ Swing with the plants . Slide across Nina Farkache’s Come a litte bit closer marbles bench. Admire the collective’s early designs by Tejo Remy, Hella Jongerius, Richard Hutten and others. Or visit Droge Donderdag (Droog Thursday) on 5 October and 2 November: two evenings offering a special introduction to Droog Design.
Vroeg Droog: the early years of Droog Design is on display in Expo 7 from 22 September to 3 December 2017 in Centraal Museum Utrecht, Agnietenstraat 1, 3512 XA Utrecht.
