5 April-5 June 2006. The Bauhaus Archive/Museum of Design in Berlin presents the work of industrial designer Gnter Kupetz on the occasion of his 80th birthday. During the 1950s and 1960s, Kupetz was one of a group of international artists at the forefront of contemporary industrial design. He caught the mood of the post-war generation in Germany with his metal and glasswork designs for the WMF (Wrttembergische Metallwaren-fabrik). One of his best-known designs is the glass mineral water bottle created for Deutsche Mineralbrunnen in 1971, which has been in production ever since, with around 5 billion bottles manufactured to date. Several of his designs are now part of the New York Museum of Modern Arts collection. A book on the complete oeuvre of Gnter Kupetz, published by Birkhuser Verlag, is on sale for 29.90 in conjunction with the exhibition. Admission Sat-Mon 7, concessions 4, Weds-Fri 6, concessions 3. Weds-Mon 10.00-17.00, Tues closed except 18 April.
