Whether you were a regular club kid or never made it past the velvet ropes, the nightclub scene has had an indelible influence on fashion, art, culture, and even design. In “Night Fever. Designing Club Culture 1960–Today,” the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany, uses archival photos, furniture, architectural models, graphic design, and film from venues such as New York’s Palladium—which opened as a club in 1985 with an interior by Arata Isozaki, Hon. FAIA, and a mural by Keith Haring—to examine how club design is as immersive as it has been influential.
The exhibition also features an installation by exhibition designer Konstantin Grcic and lighting designer Matthias Singer, which uses music and light to create a sensory experience for visitors.
“Night Fever” is on view through Sept. 9.
