Orange Dreams reveals the more playful aspects and the most original plastic design.
Based on the essential collection of the Plasticarium, the exhibition allows to (re) discover this symbolic material of the Golden Sixties. From the object of a daily use to a piece of art: the orange marries shapes in unbridled forms in a remarkable creative staging designed for the Atomium.
With its desire to involve projects, functional objects and works of art, the exhibition allows you to observe the art of living of an era, its creative climate and its research of symbiosis or its reaction towards its context. With this concentration of objects in plastic and orange, the Atomium offers a focused vision of the near past. Never before so many objects of this material and of the same creative context have been compiled which makes the exhibition a work in itself.
This exploration of the utopia of plastic from 1960 to 1973 is available through a series of 6 installations: Nomadic dream, MOD's dream, Living dream, Space music dream, Kitchen's dream, Office Dream.
The 6 Orange Dreams are proposed by Philippe Decelle, curator of the exhibition and designer of the Plasticarium They offer a personal and poetic look at consumerism of the 1960s and 1970s. It is the Utopian House made entirely of plastic that is exposed here.
