Design is a process carried out by people, for people

I recently visited the new Design Museum housed in the former 1960s built Commonwealth Institute in Holland Park in London and drastically renovated by John Pawson. I was there to see the permanent exhibition ‘Designer, Maker, User’.

It was an interesting reminder as to how much we have progressed over the years and the way that we all take design for granted.

The exhibition features almost 1000 items of twentieth and twenty-first century design viewed through the angles of the designer, manufacturer and user, including a crowd sourced wall. It covers a broad range of design disciplines, from architecture and engineering, to the digital world, fashion and graphics. Designer, Maker, User features a bold, colourful and engaging display designed by Studio Myerscough, with digital interactives by Studio Kin’.
