United Micro Kingdoms (UmK) - A Design FictionThe Design Museum begins its 2013 programme with an exhibition which presents a fictional future for the United Kingdom, as imagined by designers and educators Dunne & Raby, a London based design studio established in 1994 by Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby. Through the exhibition, entitled United Micro Kingdoms (UmK) - A Design Fiction, the duo - both professors: Dunne at the Royal College of Art in London; and Raby at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna - use 'live laboratories' to challenge the way we live. Everything from industrial design to transport systems, science and politics is used to provoke debate around the potential of design.

 

About Design Museum

In 2016 the Design Museum moves from is long standing home at Shad Thames to a venue three times the size, the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street. 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.
