Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things
February 23 through May 11, 2014
This exhibition comes to MODA via the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and highlights the stories behind the design of 36 ordinary objects that have revolutionized the way we live. In Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things, visitors have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of everyday objects by means of images, patent drawings, films and audio that illuminate four aspects of their design: innovation, production, evolution and inspiration. A “hidden hero” could be anything from a paper clip to an adhesive bandage or an umbrella. It is an ordinary object, used by people all over the world based on an ingenious, yet easily comprehensible idea. It is produced a billion times over and constitutes an indispensable fixture of daily life. It has proven itself time and time again and has remained essentially unaltered for decades. In other words, it’s a classic.
