The Story of Modern Design: 1963–2000

September 1, 2021

Series: September 1–29. In collaboration with AIANY, design educator and historian Daniella Ohad presents a unique online course exploring the foundation of modern design history. The five-session course provides an overview of one of the most exciting periods in design and architectural history. Each talk in the series will be devoted to a separate decade, and will explore a variety of themes, including the Pop Movement, studio furniture, space-age design, Minimalism, Postmodernism, and the “High-Tech” Movement. By examining interiors, furniture, objects, buildings, designers, makers, methods of production, and material culture, students will develop an understanding of the history of design and its visual vocabulary.

Daniella Ohad received her Ph.D. from Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design and Culture. She lectures and publishes widely on design history, theory, and the decorative arts. She has taught at Parsons the New School for Design, Pratt Institute, and Bard College. She is a speaker on topics in design, collecting, and taste worldwide.
