Gunnel Nyman - Open Archive

Design Museum, Helsinki

  • 4.5.2021–30.5.2021

In 2019, the Design Museum received a significant donation: the archives of designer Gunnel Nyman (1909–1948). The archives contain sketches, correspondence, photographs and other materials that used to belong to the renowned glass designer. The exhibition to open at the Gallery of the Design Museum in January 2021 will introduce these archives that she personally collected and maintained. The exhibition will also highlight the processes of museum work. Will the archive materials shed new light on the work and life of the designer? What will happen to the archives as they become a part of the collection of the Design Museum? Visitors will be able to engage in museum work by participating in the Design Attic, where they will be invited to catalogue and scan sketches from the collection into the museum database.
