19:32The Future is Here in exhibition by Design Museum
Design Museum is collaborating with the UK’s innovation agency, the
Technology Strategy Board, to deliver a major new exhibition about the
sweeping changes in manufacturing that are transforming our world.
New manufacturing techniques will involve the users of products as never
before, revolutionising the role of the consumer. How we manufacture, fund,
distribute, and buy everything from cars to shoes is progressing fast. The
Future is Here shows what that means for all of us.
The boundaries between designer, maker and consumer are disappearing
with a growing movement of ‘hacktivists’, who share and download digital
designs online in order to customise them for new uses.
In a highly experimental move the museum will house the first ‘Factory’ of
its kind where visitors can discover how 3D printing works and witness live
The exhibition looks at what exactly drives innovation and how it can lead to
increased productivity and economic growth. A visit will reveal how the new
industrial revolution has the potential to affect everyone, radically altering
our attitudes to the pace of change driven by new technology.
Mass customisation is a central story: from trainer manufacturers offering
personalised shoes on a global scale, to 3D printed dolls with features that
consumers can design and order online. A carbon loom invented by Lexus
to weave car parts such as steering wheels and dashboards from strong
carbon fibre is represented, and other exhibits include an open-source
approach to architecture, the WikiHouse.
Emerging technologies and platforms such as crowd funding, social
networking digital looms, online marketplaces, 3D printing, nanotechnology,
biotech, networked manufacturing, CNC [computer numerical controlled]
routing and open-source micro computing, are all removing the barriers of
access to manufacturing. It is the role of designers and the design process
to participate in exciting new technologies, so that more people than ever
before can take part in the production of our physical world.
The Future is Herepresents today's emerging technologies that will
become the growth sectors of tomorrow.
