Futuress was part of the “Here We Are!” exhibition, which celebrated women designers from the past 120 years. The show ​​at the Vitra Design Museum was curated by Viviane Stappmanns, Nina Steinmüller, and Susane Graner, and it told “a many-voiced story of design against the background of the struggle for equal rights and recognition.” Around 80 women in design are showcased in the exhibition, including protagonists of modernism like Eileen Gray, Charlotte Perriand, Clara Porset, and Jeanne Toussaint; business leaders like Florence Knoll and Armi Ratia; and also lesser-known figures like the social reformer Jane Addams. Futuress is featured in the last, future-oriented section of the exhibition, titled “Change The System,” next to contemporary positions such as Matri-Archi(tecture). The exhibition was on display at the Vitra Design Museum from September 23 until March 6, 2022.
