The exhibition shows the product design created in the 1960s and 1970s in ČSSR (Czechoslovakia) and NDR (German Democratic Republic). The careful selection of the best designing solutions is supplemented with an overview of everyday objects situated at the back of exposition. Visitors can find a sample living room and a sample kitchen – symbols of the life style in 1960s and 1970s. The mail goal of the exhibition is to discover the unknown, as well as to discuss the stereotype of bad designing solutions of that era. At the same time it is about confronting the projects and designs from both countries, where – against the greyness of political situation – the colourful design was created.
