The first fruits of this renewed commitment for design in its relation to craft and industry will be at the core of the exhibition “From Idea to Form”. It will highlight for the first time a major design donation of around 60 objects by renowned international designers, which the museum received by French artisan-manufacturers Domeau & Pérès in 2017. Concurrently the Kunstmuseen Krefeld will show another donation of furniture and sketches by designer Peter Ghyczy.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Garden Egg chair, this first solo show on Peter Ghyczy intends to map his diverse body of work with design innovations spanning five decades. Shedding light on the significant role that Peter Ghyczy has played in the late 20th century design, this retrospective will demonstrate his continuous design research in the quest for an absolute simplicity in the use of material and elegance of shape – from the Garden Egg chair until today.
“GHYCZY CREATES PRODUCTS OF INTEGRITY WITH AN UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE THAT ENABLES THEM TO ENHANCE ANY DOMESTIC SETTING. THIS FAMILY BUSINESS IS ABLE TO DRAW ON THE EXPERIENCE OF THE BRILLIANT PETER GHYCZY, SUPPLEMENTED BY HIS SON FELIX’S THROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONTEMPORARY FURNITURE MARKET. THE RESULT IS A COLLECTION OF TRULY TIMELESS PRODUCTS THAT ARE MANUFACTURED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS. “
