The Museum of Design was founded in 1993. It came about as a result of Stergios Delialis’ love of industrial design and useful objects which stand out because of their unique design. Until 1997 it was housed in ground floor premises on Mitropoleos Street. Today it is searching for a permanent home. Even so it remains active with exhibitions abroad, film shows and lectures.
It is the first place in Greece with a systematic approach to design. The core of the museum is its permanent collection of 2,000 objects representing industrial design in the 20th century. Classified according to subject matter (furnishing, lighting, domestic appliances, office equipment, graphics, packaging) the collection attempts to illustrate developments in perception, use, form, aesthetics and technology in the products of industrial design. There is also a library of 5000 books, plus magazines and catalogues on the subject of design.
