Sling Shots and Cityscape Hangers at VITRA Design Museum

The Sling Shots and a full set of Cityscape Hangers have been selected for the upcoming exhibition:

Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things
Aug 20 - Sep 19 2010

Vitra Design Museum
Buckminster Fuller Dome
Charles-Eames-Str. 1
D -79576 Weil am Rhein

This exhibition is devoted to the “heroes” of everyday life – things that we use on a daily basis, but to which we pay little attention. We know almost nothing about their history, although they influence our lives and have set many standards. We present these everyday heroes together with patent drawings by their inventors, with historical and contemporary advertisements and films, and also with design and art objects that have been inspired by them.
