Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary ThingsThe anglepoise lamp is just one of the archetypal designs celebrated in the Design Museum's Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary Things, a collection display devoted to contemporary design and architecture which opens on 30th January 2013. Everyday items like the anglepoise lamp, the post box, and the London 2012 logo are presented as examples of extraordinary design and emblems of modernism in an exhibition which offers a snapshot of modern day design. Sections include National Identity, Plastics and Modernism as well as Style Through The Decades, featuring fashion from the 70s to the 90s, from Carnaby Street to the Kings Road.

 

About Design Museum

The Grade II* listed building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson to include the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge.
