Pratt Manhattan Gallery presents Design by Time, an exhibition with work from 22 international designers portraying time and its dynamic effects on fashion, furniture, textiles, vessels, and more.

Representing an international field, the designers in the exhibition go beyond the conventional intention of design—to give functional objects a visually arresting reality. Their analytic, formal processes are partnered with natural phenomena, chemical, and physical forces, while time-based acts such as performance and drawing are magnified to serve as collaborators in the design.

Featuring: Atelier Mark Sturkenboom; Auger-Loizeau; Maarten Baas; BeatWoven; Sebastian Brajkovic; Hussein Chalayan; Edhv, Architects of Identity; Front; Glithero; Marlène Huissoud; Humans since 1982; William Lamson; Mathieu Lehanneur; mischer'traxler studio; Jacob Olmedo; Diana Scherer; Sebastian Cox Workshop; Studio for Industrial Design; Bartholomäus Traubeck; Nicole Wermers; Jólan van der Wiel; and Ryan Mario Yasin.

Design by Time will tour through March 2021 to the following venues: Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN; College of Wooster Art Museum, Wooster, OH; Gregg Museum of Art and Design, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC; Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, SC; and the Museum of Craft and Design, San Francisco, CA.

This exhibition and companion publication are supported in part by a grant from the Creative Industries Fund NL, and as part of the Dutch Culture USA program by the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.
