The leading Swiss museum for design and visual communication presents the treasures of its internationally renowned collection. For example, Max Bill’s Ulmer Hocker meets Albrecht Dürer’s Apocalypse of 1498, Adrian Frutiger’s Univers typeface a Balenciaga cocktail dress. Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s marionettes dance around the SBB station clock while Emile Gallé’s art nouveau vase finds a companion in one of El Lissitzky’s lithographs. The museum has built up its collections over the past 150 years and today holds more than half a million objects ranging across the arts and crafts, graphics, posters, textiles, furniture and product design. 2,000 collection highlights enable visitors to discover the world of beautiful, useful, and curious everyday objects in the basement exhibition at Ausstellungsstrasse.
