“Having selected a piece of art and a function for a space, designers were allowed to put together a space representative of their own design ideas”

CASE STUDY

Started in 2008, Design MMoCA is a biannual fundraiser that promotes the marriage of interior design and fine artwork. Sixteen designers and architectural firms from the state of Wisconsin were selected to create environments inspired by a piece of art from the museum's permanent collection. The exhibit was open for ten days and it received a lot of interest.

Having selected a piece of art and a function for a space (dining, working, living or sleeping), designers were allowed to put together a space representative of their own design ideas, utilizing unlimited number and type of products and vendors. Each team decoded the piece they selected and tried to understand its meaning, which then was used to inspire the displays as it related to their function, layout, style, color scheme, atmosphere and energy.
