Collection of Furniture
The furniture and woodcraft collection with its nearly 100 pieces by approximately 30 authors is the smallest collection at Estonian Museum of Applied Art and Design (ETDM).
Although collecting furniture has been neither a systematic activity nor a priority for the museum for decades, a fascinating cross-section of the development of Estonian furniture design providing some unexpected discoveries has accumulated in the course of a long period of time.
The furniture collection includes samples ranging from the early 20th-century furniture design to the experiments displayed at “Space and Form” exhibitions and the furniture solutions with restless form language from the 1990s. Few pieces from the 1940s-60s notify of the existence of woodcraft as a specific field within the context of our applied art.
