FLYING PANELS


When we visited Stockholm Furniture Fair in Feb 2020 we were lucky enough to have to have some spare time to visit Note Design’s Flying Panels exhbition.


Opened on 18 October at ArkDes, Sweden’s national centre for architecture and design, ‘Flying Panels – How Concrete Panels Changed the World’ explores the changing fortunes of concrete building systems and celebrates the architectural optimism they once embodied. Researched by Chilean curators Pedro Ignacio Alonso and Hugo Palmarola and in collaboration with Senior Curator at ArkDes,  Carlos Mínguez Carrasco, the exhibition uses poster art, paintings, films, toys, cartoons and opera sets to examine concrete’s tremendous cultural impact across continents and decades, and showcases models of 60 modular building systems from around the world.
