The exhibtion was filled to the brim with approximately 180 iconic pieces of art and design objects from the mid 1950′s to 1972 by great artists and designers such as Warhol, Oldenburg, Lichtenstein, Eames, Nelson, Castiglioni, and Denmark’s very own Verner Panton.

 Louisiana explains: “Pop Art Design is both as a concept and in its staging a grip in understanding of the period’s reative processes where a significant interaction between art and design gave birth to a brand new mode of expression. Definitions of art and design were challenged and in turn also the hierarchies between them. In the exhibition the dialogue between the two are deliberately equal, and several places it can be difficult to determine what is art and what is design”
