We want to be modern







A couple of weeks ago we went to see the exhibition "We want to be modern" at the MMK museum in Arnhem. The exhibition is about polish design from 1955 to 1968  from the Collection of the National Museum in Warsaw. Featuring some amazing pieces of pottery and fabric.

Some of my blogger friends went to see the exhibition last year in Warschau and they also loved it.
Not sure which museum will show the exibition next but if it's in your area it's definitely worth paying a visit.

Check out this article from Designboom.

see you
Kay

PS: I love in the moment
- my green trousers
- the German Collection from OPI ( not sure which color I like most)
- Dahlias
- apples
- song of the day David Bowie Let's Dance
