Century of the Child Online

Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900–2000 is an exploration and celebration of modern design for children in the 20th century, bringing together designers and artists from around the world. When we decided to create an exhibition website we wanted to share this sense of play and adventure. Luckily we found a group of playful collaborators at Hello Monday, a firm based in New York and Copenhagen, which seemed doubly appropriate since there is such a strong Scandinavian and Nordic strand in the show.

This site brings together a selection of images from across the seven sections of the exhibition, and includes supporting text about the objects and exhibition. In the coming days we will continue to refine the site, but we welcome you to check it out at

As an added element, we’ve also launched a Tumblr site that will publish an object a day for the 100 days of the exhibition. Follow along at

We’ll continue to share stories on this blog, so keep an eye out for more videos and interviews.
