Project Description

Design Museum Den Bosch

Design Museum Den Bosch in the Netherlands presents the first major retrospective of design of the Third Reich. The exhibition entitled Design of the Third Reich shows the huge contribution of design to the development of the evil Nazi ideology.

Heijmerink Wagemakers was commissioned to manufacture and deliver 30 customized showcases in a short time – in close collaboration with the museum and the Pronk designers.

Design reflects the whole of the world, with all its good and bad sides. The Design of the Third Reich exhibition shows design as an instrument in the hands of the ultimate forces of darkness. The Nazis were masters in using design to achieve their goal, to both convince and destroy huge numbers of people. The exhibition analyses how the influencing processes worked at the time.

The exhibition runs from 8 September 2019 to 1 March 2020.
