The High will be the exclusive Southeast venue for Electrifying Design: A Century of Lighting, the first large-scale show to consider electrical lighting over the past one hundred years as a catalyst for technological and artistic innovation within major avant-garde design movements. The exhibition will feature nearly eighty rare lighting examples by leading international designers including Achille Castiglioni, Christian Dell, Poul Henningsen, Ingo Maurer, Verner Panton, Gino Sarfatti, Ettore Sottsass, and Wilhelm Wagenfeld, among many others. The works on view will demonstrate how these innovators harnessed light’s radiance and beauty, resulting in designs that extend beyond or challenge the functional nature of lighting. On display July 2 through Sept. 26.
