Donzella Presents Fluid: Movement in Mid-Century Design
Presenting an exhibition of expressive forms in the post-war decades, Donzella highlights furniture and lighting by European and American designers opening May 2nd.
Donzella presents an exhibition of furniture and lighting by European and American designers that carved out striking new directions in Mid-Century Modern design. Moving away from the rigidity of mass-produced furniture, these designers introduced a new fluidity of line and form that changed not only the look of furniture, but also how we look at it.
Highlighting the three post-war decades, roughly 1945-1975, FLUID – Movement in Mid-Century Design features an array of designs that elegantly embody these changes, including pieces by Osvaldo Borsani, Paolo Buffa, Poul Kjaerholm, Vladimir Kagan, and Philip & Kelvin LaVerne. FLUID opens May 2nd at Donzella Project Space and will be on view until June 16.
Known for showcasing 20th century and contemporary designers and artists that stand out for their distinctive aesthetic, Paul Donzella has been curating and presenting in a unique gallery and showroom environment for three decades.
Regarding FLUID – Movement in Mid-Century Design, Donzella says he is especially excited about presenting this exhibition because in his 30 years dealing in historic 20th century design, organic and undulating forms have always been the most attractive to him.
