"Ornament is a crime" highlights the prohibition that strikes ornament in artistic production in the twentieth century (1910-1970), chairs from bistro to iron. Useless, bourgeois and primitive, the exhibition shows how ornament is, for the proponents of modernity, a barbaric archaism to be eradicated.
