From furniture generated by algorithms to designs brought to life by a robot, the work of experimental Dutch designer Joris Laarman challenges the boundaries of art, science, and technology. Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age is the first U.S. museum survey to offer an in-depth look at this visionary designer’s innovative body of work.

Join curatorial staff for this private, behind-closed-doors tour exploring Laarman’s highly inventive, groundbreaking projects that reimagine traditional forms, many of which are one-of-a-kind and some of which are created only in very limited production.

  • The July 23 tour is led by Marissa Hershon, curatorial assistant for decorative arts, craft, and design.
  • The September 10 tour is led by Cindi Straussthe Sara and Bill Morgan Curator of decorative arts, craft, and design.
