Typology: An Ongoing study of Everyday Items

On view at Vitra Design Museum Gallery since December 2019, is “Typology: An Ongoing study of Everyday Items”, an exhibition featuring works by the French design collective Collections Typologie.

December 7, 2019 - January 24, 2021

On view at Vitra Design Museum Gallery since December 2019, is “Typology: An Ongoing study of Everyday Items”, an exhibition featuring works by the French design collective Collections Typologie. Fascinated by the processes that shape and change everyday objects, Collections Typologie explores the history, production, and formal language of objects such as wine bottles, cork stoppers, or the metal balls used in boules de pétanque. “Typology: An Ongoing study of Everyday Items” presents the result of their research, including their newest work on wooden crates. The viewer is invited to take a fresh look at previously ignored parts of our object culture and question our relationship to everyday objects. The members of the collective—French product designers Raphaël Daufresne, Thélonious Goupil, Guillaume Bloget, and Guillaume Jandin—are known for focusing on minute details of objects whose origins and development are often overlooked and have gone largely undocumented.
