In that time, the face of design has been transformed by the digital revolution and by the globalisation of design. With the new Design Museum due to open in late 2015 at the former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington, it is an ideal moment to reflect on the direction design will take in the next 25 years.
Over the course of 2014, some of the world’s most influential and creative innovators, most of whom have been involved with the museum since its opening, will be coming to the museum to celebrate its anniversary and talk about developing trends and the future of design. They include:
- Alberto Alessi
- Ricky Burdett
- Peter Cook
- Rolf Fehlbaum
- Frank Gehry
- Zaha Hadid
- Thomas Heatherwick
- Jacques Herzog
- Brent Hoberman
- Jonathan Ive
- Martha Lane Fox
- Amanda Levete
- Ross Lovegrove
- Javier Mariscal
- Morag Myerscough
- Marc Newson
- Peter Saville
- Paul Smith
- Alan Yentob
Each speaker will reflect on what is next for design, as well as on the past 25 years in their field, be it fashion, product, technology or architecture.
IN THE MAKING 22 JANUARY – 4 MAY MEDIA PREVIEW 21 JANUARY
Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, award winning designers of the London 2012 Olympic torch, have always had a technical curiosity and fascination in the making process. This exhibition draws on their interest, exploring the aesthetic of the unfinished and presenting objects mid manufacture.
Barber and Osgerby have selected products that have an intriguing beauty or unexpected quality before assuming their final form. The show highlights the designers’ in-depth knowledge of the manufacturing process and how this can influence and inspire. This exhibition is guest curated by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby and is supported by B&B Italia.
Sir Terence Conran founded the Design Museum 25 years ago. He wanted to encourage everyone to appreciate the value of design. Margaret Thatcher, the then prime minister, opened the building in Shad Thames on 5 July 1989.
