Design Museum Collection: Extraordinary Stories About Ordinary Things

Sunday 20/4 @ Design Museum

This new permanent exhibition at the Design Museum – which runs until Jan 2015 – examines key designs that have defined our modern world. It mixes up stunning design (including prototypes) and hard facts, with themed sections on plastics, Modernism and fashion. The Anglepoise lamp is spotlighted and the fascinating story of its development – by a car engineer obsessed with springs – is revealed. The story of the development of the London 2012 logo – the so-called "design for everybody" – is also examined.
