With Liberty and Tables for All

Francophiles and fans of furniture-as-art will rejoice in “Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity,” a new exhibit at the Wolfsonian. Centre National des Arts Plastiques in Paris generously loaned 150 objects, including furniture and elements of industrial design, to Miami’s museum of thinkism. On view this Friday through March 26, the exhibit examines how design affected the French national consciousness from World War II to the present day. Designers Pierre Paulin, Roger Tallon, and Philippe Starck are well represented in this intriguing display. The exhibit focuses on important episodes in French design history, from the influence of electronics to the new towns of the ’60s and ’70s. Opening just before Art Basel, this show is a must-see for those looking for a bit of European flavor and history, as well as insight into the impact that design can have on our daily lives.
