The Museum für Gestaltung Zürich has amassed over 500,000 objects in its collections. This immense repertoire serves as a basis for the project series MyCollection, a new version of which is now presented by Stefan Sagmeister. The Austrian graphic designer is currently examining the theme of “Beauty”. Having taken a thorough look in the archive, he presents his personal selection of objects from the collection and comments on them. They include pieces that are generally regarded as well-designed and beautiful. Sagmeister is especially fascinated by things that, independent of their function or use, are highly aesthetic. The actual meaning of a collection is first revealed by selecting, comparing, and commenting. “MyCollection” illustrates the design preferences of Stefan Sagmeister — but without a single object designed by him.
