Plastic shapes our everyday life like hardly any other material: from packaging to fashion, from household appliances to furniture, from cars to architecture.
Thanks to their plastic malleability, limitless versatility and inexpensive production, plastics have fired the imagination of designers for decades. With a major exhibition in spring 2022, the Vitra Design Museum is dedicating itself to the history and utopian potential of plastics, but is also addressing the current challenges for design, science and politics. "Plastic. Rethinking the World" examines the rapid development and proliferation of plastic in the 20th century, illuminates the ecological consequences and presents research and design projects for a new, sustainable approach to plastic in the future.
