Many of the design objects are famous design classics. The spotlight focuses on several individual gems of design, from the masterpiece of Italian design, Pietro Chiesa’s vase Cartoccio (1932), or outstanding creations by Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkalas from the late 1960s and early 1970s up to Jaime Hayon’s and his Cristal Candy series (2009) for Baccarat.
