The Design Museum museum is devoted to contemporary design in every form from architecture and fashion to graphics and decorative arts, product and industrial design. It now offers a free, permanent exhibition titled Designer Maker User which features almost 1000 items of twentieth and twenty-first century design viewed through the angles of the designer, manufacturer and user, including a crowdsourced wall. The exhibition covers a broad range of design disciplines, from architecture and engineering, to the digital world, fashion and graphics.
Current Exhibit (Thru April 23, 2017) Reactions to a Complex World Fear and Love presents eleven new installations by some of the most innovative and thought-provoking designers and architects working today. –
These newly commissioned works explore a spectrum of issues that define our time, including: networked sexuality, sentient robots, slow fashion and settled nomads The exhibition asserts that design is deeply connected not just to commerce and culture but to urgent underlying issues – issues that inspire fear and love. This is a bold, multidisciplinary and global exhibition that aims to capture the mood of the present and establish the Design Museum as the home of design debate.
