"This exhibition is devoted to the "heroes" of everyday life - things that we use on a daily basis, but to which we pay little attention. We know almost nothing about their history, although they influence our lives and have set many standards. We present these everyday heroes together with patent drawings by their inventors, with historical and contemporary advertisements and films, and also with design and art objects that have been inspired by them."
The Vitra Design Museum in co-operation with Hi-Cone, showcases 'Hidden Heroes. The Genius of Everyday Things'. You can see the online version of the exhibition at www.hidden-heroes.net
