Introducing the Beddoe Collection

Update 2 April 2012: All is not as it may immediately appear in this post…. The truth is here.

Our Twentieth Century gallery in Brighton Museum celebrates influential movements in design, such as Art Nouveau and Bauhaus. A new addition to the gallery celebrates an often overlooked movement: ‘Le Style Municipal’.

The Beddoe collection is an important collection of English furniture tracing the influence on 20th century English manufacturers of contemporary European design, notably ‘Le Style Municipal’ and the ‘Abfall’ movement. Later examples owe much to Hasawa.

We are grateful to thank the primary donor to the collection, Benne Basculante.
