The Klassik Stiftung Weimar will present the exhibition “Passion, Function and Beauty. Henry van de Velde and his Contribution to European Modernism” on March 24, 2013 at 11:00am. The press conference will be held at the Neues Museum Weimar in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Belgian architect and designer Henry van de Velde.

The event will highlight over 700 loaned pieces of Van de Velde’s greatest achievements coming from all over Europe as well as a few pieces from private collections that have not previously been released to public eyes. The exhibition depicts Van de Velde as one of the ground-breaking designers of modernism from 1890 to the late 1930s. Visitors can see his take on a “total work of art” through his interiors, book designs, furniture, metal, textile and ceramic works.
