There’s a new exhibition at the Landesmuseum all about style. It takes you on a a journey through Switzerland and Europe from 1850 to the turn of the century. Beginning with the “Great Exhibition” in 1851 in London Europe it examines the search for beauty, elegance and style  in every aspect of people’s lives from their interiors, to the products they used, to their dress and even buildings.

At this time revolutionary inventions such as the telephone and the lightbulb were becoming more commonplace and arts and crafts schools sprung up throughout Europe. Design became the new watch word and there was growing interest in style and “appropriate style”.

There are over 300 exhibits at the exhibition – with textiles, furniture, drawings and paintings, including special loans from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art (MAK) in Vienna and the renowned Musée des Tissus in Lyon.

The exhibition also ties in with the recently “Ideal Living” exhibition at the Museum für Gestaltung, which covers trends in Swiss furniture design over the course of the 20th century. From 23rd March to 15th July you are also able to purchase a combined ticket for CHF 15 to see both exhibitions on the same day. Complementary e-guides are available for your smartphone.
