Design Museum Boston Hosts Exhibit at Logan International Airport

26 November, 2012

-By Staff



Design Museum Boston has opened Getting There: Design for Travel in the Modern Age at Logan International Airport's Terminal E. Jointly developed by the Design Museum of Boston, Grand Circle Gallery, and Boston Logan Airport with sponsorship from IdeaPaint and Samsonite, the exhibition explores how design shapes the experience of traveling by ships, trains, and planes.

"We are thrilled to bring this exciting exhibit to Logan Airport," says Sam Aquillano, co-founder of Design Museum Boston. "It helps us accomplish one of our key goals: to showcase and make great design accessible to the public. The thousands of people who pass through Terminal E will have an opportunity to see this wonderful show about travel and design."

Getting There was first shown at Grand Circle Gallery in the spring of 2012. Looking back on the jet-setting days of the early 1900s, the exhibition considers the contemporary traveler's experience in a deregulated travel industry, and offers glimpses into the future of travel. Displays chronicle the design evolution of traveler accessories, such as noise-canceling headphones, and the design of airline seats, train interiors, and cutlery. Drawings, models, and prototypes from design firms such as Bose, Samsonite, Teague, and IDEO highlight projects that have creatively addressed design challenges posed by the constraints of human travel.

The exhibition is on view through November 15, 2013 on the pre-security level of the terminal 24 hours per day, seven days a week. Admission is free.
