Barcelona | the complete works of Adolf Loos at ‘Museu del Disseny’


Adolf Loos – espais privats (private spaces)

Until 25 February 2018, the Barcelona Design Museum (Museu del Disseny) presents an exhibition featuring the complete works of the Viennese architect Adolf Loos, considered to be one of the pioneers of the Modern Movement.

A central theme of the show is the aesthetic revolution that Loos (1870-1933) led in Vienna at around the turn of the twentieth century, when he rebelled against Secession to champion economy in architectural construction and design.
The exhibition – focusing on the work of Loos as a designer of interiors – features more than 120 items of furniture, all either designed or selected by Loos for his interior spaces between 1899 and 1931. These pieces of furniture are complemented by documentary material, including period photographs, lithographs, drawings, texts and plans of architectural projects, as well as models, both of works that were completed and others that never came to fruition.
