Children’s Exhibition: Mini Maxi

Jun 24th 2021 to Feb 22nd 2022

Out of scale. What happens if things don’t fit?

A chair fits your body. A pencil feels right in your hand. A tap fits a sink.

 

You probably don’t think about scale on an ordinary day. Things fit properly.

 

That’s true of all design. From large buildings, rooms and furniture to lamps, wooden spoons and toys.

 

Each and every item is designed according to the proportions of the body and for the person who will be using it. And for its purpose. Because nearly all design is created to tackle a specific need.

 

So what happens when we do away with scale?

 

 

If a chair is too high? A bowl is too small? Or a lamp far too big?

 

This is exactly what you and your body can explore in the exhibition Mini Maxi. When we change the scale of our surroundings, we also experience and sense them in a new way.

 

The exhibition is for children. (Or is it?)

 

Step into an inspirational universe where you can learn everything about good design and scale. The entire family can also have a go at creative assignments and unbridle their imaginations.
