Contemporary Design Collection
The Contemporary Design Collection of the Museum of Applied Arts is the latest department of the Museum. Its foundation did not only aim at building up a new Contemporary Design Collection but also at cooperation based on experience and common interests. Our goal is to create a collection representing different branches of 20th- and 21st-century design and arts and crafts. When choosing an item, we take into consideration how it fits into our already existing collection and into other possible contexts with the different museum departments. It is our task to insert into our collection the characteristic design items of the socialist countries of Eastern Europe before the change of the political system, as there are hardly any of them in our collection for the time being.
