1000 visits on design museums blog!

Thanks for all contributors and all visitors

Great design exhibitions of the past #3

The Origin of Things (Dutch: Het ontstaan der dingen) was an exhibition from 10th May to 27th July 2003 at Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. Important contemporary and past designers were presented with a sample and its design and production process.

The catalogue edited by Thimo Te Duits with good contributions is unfortunatly sold out.

The Vintage Mac Museum

Virtual Design Museums must not only be virtual presentations of products, but could also be a good platform for historic software and their surfaces. I knew some good sites showing historic webdesign. The Vintage Mac Museum is a good sample for a combination of showing historic soft- and hardware as well.

A museum will open in the "Design District Miami"

Since 1998, more than 50 showrooms and 10 architecture firms have opened in the "Design District" of Miami. Now it is planned to open the Craig Museum of Contemporary Art & Design.

"A museum project is stirring debate in the Miami Design District. Miami Beach-based Dacra Development is on the verge of erecting a 42,000-square-foot, six-story contemporary art museum at 140 N.E. 39th St., despite complaints by residents of the nearby Buena Vista East Historic Neighborhood Association."
