Two upcoming exhibits take a closer look at the objects that populate our world. Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) will present Hidden Heroes: The Genius of Everyday Things organized by the Vitra Design Museum. Opening on February 23, the show focuses its lens on the ordinary, often overlooked, objects that have become indispensable to our daily lives. The exhibit highlights four aspects of design: innovation, production, evolution, and inspiration. The Design Museum London has collaborated with renowned design duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby to capture the essence of objects through their display mid-manufacture. Some extravagant, others prosaic, the items including a cricket bat, coin, diamond, and banknote were all chosen due to the surprising form they take before completion. In the Making will be on display until May 4.
