Can air also be material? The exhibition “Design on Air” examines the significance of air for design, and how designers react to this element’s current role.



 

Air is the most volatile of the four elements and yet it is under threat and in need of protection as the discussions on current transport policy show. But can air also be material? The exhibition “Design on Air” examines the significance of air for design, and how designers react to this element’s current role.

Air can be functional when considering comfort or safety, just think of a car’s airbag. It can also be blown to perform both technical and formative tasks. The museum shows various works by 60 designers, including Jasper Morrison’s Air Chair, Nendo’s Innerblow Table, Dirk Wynant’s Do-Nuts, Philippe Tabet’s Venetian masks with integrated air filter, and Marco Zanuso's Ariante fan, all of which illustrate the many ways in which design uses air.
