Design Museum Collection Exhibition Series Vol.12
1930s Designs for Plastic−Art Deco’s Star Material

In this volume, we exhibit about 100 artifacts from the daily life of the 1930s, turning our attention to plastic, a new material at the time that permeated society and greatly influenced design. Looking back on the 1930s, when plastic proliferated as the material of mass culture, modernizing society and brightly coloring daily life, this exhibit presents the sense of design and the energy that infused society thanks to the development of this new material.
