DESIGN MUSEUM COLLECTION: EXTRAORDINARY STORIES ABOUT
The Design Museum has the UK’s only collection devoted exclusively
to contemporary design and architecture. The collection display reveals intriguing insights found in these exceptional, as well as everyday, items. Six design stories are presented in the exhibition, offering a diverse look at design: National Identity, Plastics, Modernism, An Archetype – The Anglepoise Lamp, A Designer in the Spotlight and Style Through The Decades. National Identity looks at the objects that define a nation such as the phone box, road signage, the post box, the London 2012 logo and the Euro coin. The dominance of plastic in our lives is examined with examples of luxury through to everyday plastics from the last 75 years. Modernism in Britain provides a snapshot of a remarkable and dynamic period of design, shown through furniture, products, textiles and architecture, alongside contextual images and documents. Style is shown through a collection of fashion from the 70s to the 90s and charts the shift of the shopper from Carnaby Street to Kings Road to Bond Street. Rich, thought provoking and surprising, let the museum’s collection tell you extraordinary stories about ordinary things
