The world-renowned architect and designer Alvar Aalto’s (1898-1976) Paimio Sanatorium from 1933 is a modernist masterpiece. Designmuseum Danmark will show a pop-up exhibition focusing on Aalto's outstanding work with shapes, colors and function.
In the interwar period, tuberculosis was a widespread and deadly disease: light, air and cleanliness became the new mantra, and Paimio fulfilled it all with a radically renewing architecture. Architecture and design can do it all and support the good life - in this way there is a natural connection to the development of today's super-hospitals.
The museum owns two of the original chairs from the Paimio Sanatorium.
