London, England. This is the permanent (free) exhibition at the Design Museum, in it's new location, under a hyberbolic paraboloid roof. The exhibition designer, Morag Myerscough, opens it with a colorful title wall that rotates the three words to tie the concepts together.
The three themes are perfect in their simplicity, and never boring. Political, economic and environmental issues weave between them. Triangular patterns are a visual theme.
The space is filled, rich with design examples
Black supports and yellow enamel labels define the modular design throughout. Labels can wrap counter edges, or fold under for angled wall or pedestal placement.
This counter cuts through a wall between two sections of the show.
On the other side, "Choice & Taste" is seeded with subjective terms which fuel visitor discussion. Some of the walls are panelled with acoustic cork.
The exhibition interpretation embraces the "inherent plurality of design" with open-ended questions and multiple points of view.
A central circular display area breaks out of the black for red.
Graphic eye candy. A delicious wall of Olivetti posters.
Nice reflections on the bright enamel area walls.
This museum seems to confirm that design museums/exhibitions have truly become mainstream destinations. The general public's awareness and design sophistication is impressive and truly admirable.
The maker area includes an activity counter with projects such as design a logo for your family, or a system for sorting waste at home.
