The Future is HereA live 'Factory' showing how 3D printing works will be installed at The Future is Here, the Design Museum's group show which looks at how the lines between designers, manufacturers and consumers are becoming increasingly blurred. The exhibition looks at revolutionary changes in manufacturing and technology which mean the end user is involved in the process as never before. Advances in manufacturing mean we can now customise everything from a pair of trainers to dolls, all available to order online at the click of a mouse.

 

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.
