The Moscow Design Museum's Opening Show

Posted: Dec. 7th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

The Moscow Design Museum reveals its very first exhibition as being on household items of the soviet era. The museum brings a focus on the cultural influence the USSR had on the designs of everyday items and brings praise to the aspects that brought them into their forms.

The Moscow Design Museum opens its doors today, with an inaugural exhibition featuring household items, graphic posters and children's toys designed in the USSR.

For Soviet Design: 1950s–1980s, the museum turns the spotlight on home-grown Soviet industrial, graphic and fashion design.

‘These are not just charming objects, but a result of systematic, functional, aesthetic and humanistic approaches to designing’, the museum says on their website.

The objects are based around everyday life in the USSR, divided into sections around childhood and games, leisure and hobbies, sports and mass events, education and science, and domestic life.
