Running 26 April - 30 September 2012, the exhibition will feature work from designers including Hella Jongerius, Viktor & Rolf, Piet Hein Eek, Scholten & Baijings and Marcel Wanders. These pieces will be set against the striking interiors of the palace, which include rooms decorated with leather wallpaper and Delft tiles. Situated in Dessau, Germany, the palace was completed in 1698 and is now nearing the end of an intensive restoration undertaken in recent years.
