"The Senses" - Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum / by Kauppi & Kauppi

We are excited to share that Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum in New York has included Johan Kauppi and Wakufuru furniture in the exhibition "The Senses: Design Beyond Vision". The exhibition runs from April 13 through Oct. 28 at Cooper Hewitt, 2 East 91st Steet, New York.

”The Senses” examines how multisensory design amplifies everyone’s ability to receive information, explore the world, satisfy essential needs and experience joy and wonder. The exhibition includes work by more than 65 designers and teams and reveals how sensory design can solve problems and enhance life for all people, including those with sensory disabilities. An accompanying book has also been co-published by Cooper Hewitt and Princeton Architectural Press.

Wakufuru is a collection of solid wood furniture with acoustic properties, launched by Glimakra of Sweden at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017.

From ancient textiles and works on paper to icons of modern design and cutting-edge technologies, Cooper Hewitt’s collection serves as inspiration for creative work of all kinds and tells the story of design’s paramount importance in improving our world.” - Caroline Baumann, Director.
