About the Exhibit:
SAFE is an exhibition of more than 300 objects and prototypes designed in order to 1) protect the body and the mind from dangerous or stressful situations; 2) prevent and respond to situations of emergency; and 3) provide a sense of comfort and safety.
The exhibition covers all forms of design, from manufactured products to information architecture. The products will range from refugee shelters to baby strollers, from demining equipment to nutritional information, from protective sports gear, to toys that help children with psychological impairments regain a sense of self and of the world surrounding them. SAFE will explore the fine line that divides function from emotion, as well as the surprising skill and poetry with which the best contemporary designers tread it.
Organized by Paola Antonelli, Curator, and Patricia Juncosa Vecchierini, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art.
