The International Museum of Dinnerware Design: Timeless Dinnerware Design

The International Museum of Dinnerware Design in Ann Arbor, Michigan, celebrates a significant aspect of our daily lives through its collections, exhibitions and educational programming, which provide a window on the multitude of cultural and societal attitudes toward food and dining and commemorates the objects which exalt and venerate the dining experience.

Timeless Dinnerware Design, a special exhibition for SOFA Chicago 2017, focuses on dinnerware created since the 1930s; each object or set, a masterpiece in dinnerware design that has proven to be lasting, classical and eternal and exudes timelessness in its presentation – work that captures our imagination whether it is futuristic, nostalgic, or of the moment. Curated from the permanent collection, the exhibition is a sample visual exploration of dinnerware designed during the last 100 years. Some were intended to adorn our fine tabletops for all eternity, and other were created to be less permanent, despite attractive qualities and design success and accolades galore.

Presented by the International Museum of Dinnerware Design, Ann Arbor, Michigan; curated by Margaret Carney, Ph.D., Director of The International Museum of Dinnerware Design.
