Design in Motion explored themes of movement, transportation, lines, and curves.

The anchor exhibition, showcased in KANEKO’s majestic Bow Truss Space, highlighted innovative automobile and industrial designers. A curated selection of important, thoughtfully designed vehicles was featured in the space, with ancillary background information, photography, and insights into the creative process. Each of the automobiles in the exhibition was a unique and compelling work of art — but more importantly, Design in Motion explored the designer, the process involved, and the effects of these design concepts within and beyond their own industry.

A similar treatment was given to bicycles, complete with classic designs of the past and cutting-edge technological advances. Local bike shops aided in educational programming and outreach to celebrate bicycles as works of art and modes of transportation.

Design in Motion featured a selection of other interesting vessels, including a rare watercraft and innovative video projections, to create a lively and immersive transformation of the space.
