    The mesmerizing collection of furniture, clothes, books and other items designed and created by Soviet masters will be on display from November 22, 2017, until January 12, 2018, at the All-Russian Decorative Art Museum.

    More than 500 exhibits will be presented at the event, arranged by the Moscow Design Museum. In the words of the organizers, "System of Design in USSR" is the first exhibition to reveal how various Soviet institutes, bureaus and services worked in the field of artistic design and technical aesthetics in the 1960-1980s.
