In the MakingIn an exhibition guest curated by Ed Barber and Jay Osgerby (the duo behind the London 2012 Olympic torch, the 'Tab' lamp and the 'Tip Ton' chair), the Design Museum looks at how familiar objects are made. Products are caught mid-manufacture, their unfinished forms held up as things of beauty in their own right. The pair say that such an in-depth appreciation of the manufacturing process often inspires their own work.

 

About Design Museum

Located on the banks of the Thames, the Design Museum has two floors and showcases contemporary design in all forms, including fashion, graphic and architectural. There are two main galleries, and the collections trace the history of design developments, from the origins of mass production to contemporary works. More about Design Museum
