With her designs
In the exhibition “Beauty of Form”, the Kunstgewerbemuseum (Museum of Decorative
Arts) is dedicated to the work of the designer Christa Petroff-Bohne, who is one of the most important German designers* of the 1950s and 1960s. With her designs for industry, she brought contemporary design into every day culture of the newly founded German Democratic Republic (GDR). As a professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee, she was a formative personality and influenced generations of students. Her work is an important testimony to modern design activities in the GDR and is also relevant in international comparison.
