Otto Künzli in Japan


Otto Künzli’s vast career retrospective, Otto Künzli: The Exhibition, opens at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum on October 9th.

Born in 1948 in Zurich, Switzerland, Otto Künzli is one of the most important figures in the world of contemporary jewellery. Thanks to his consistently conceptual approach, as well as the humor he expresses through his works, Künzli has also gained attention and regard beyond that field.

This exhibition was originally shown at Die Neue Sammlung – The International Design Museum Munich and has toured to MUDAC – Musée de design et d’arts appliqués contemporains, Lausanne. This leg of the tour brings together over 150 works, ranging from his earliest pieces dating from 1967. The exhibition also includes drawings, photographs and installations.
