TORONTO - A Tiffany table lamp made in the United States. An oak chair designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh of Scotland. A silver chocolate service created by Denmark's Georg Jensen.

They're among the highlights of "Around 1914: Design in a New Age," a year-long exhibition opening March 29 at the Royal Ontario Museum.

The show explores how, a century ago, many of the world's leading designers worked in innovative ways in response to ideological and social challenges. Frank Lloyd Wright, Emile Gall�, Carlo Bugatti and Josef Hoffmann are some of the other designers and craftsmen represented, the museum says.

Over 100 objects from the ROM's collection will be displayed, many of them Art Nouveau decorative objects from France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and other European countries. The ROM's holdings of important works by key designers are considered among the best in North America.

"Around 1914" is one of several exhibitions being planned by the ROM to mark its centennial throughout 2014. The museum opened on March 19, 1914.
