Vintage – Design with a History

There has long been a market for high-quality vintage products, but the term has broadened in definition recently to include mass-manufactured “used look” designs. The Museum für Gestaltung has dedicated an exhibition to the present trend for “vintage” items, displaying original vintage pieces, such as Gerrit Rietveld’s Red and Blue Chair, against designs that attempt to recreate the style. A film commissioned by the museum shows how a piece of affordable shabby chic furniture is created in India.
