LONDON | The Design Museum, has recently re-opened at a new location in Kensington after 22 years in Shad Thames. The new West London building (a 1960s Grade II building formerly home to the Commonwealth Institute) is an intriguing design by John Pawson: contemporary and minimalist, wooden-themed, with wide open spaces and interesting angles that make the museum an intriguing place to visit before you even begin to look at the works inside.

The museum covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design and entrance to the museum’s permanent collection display “Designer Maker User” is free. “Designer Maker User” contains over 1000 items of twentieth and twenty-first century design viewed through the angles of the designer, manufacturer and user.

There Design Museum also has a café, restaurant, library, and an auditorium for various talks and events. With the tagline “Design is all around us. It never stops. We just don’t always notice it.”, the Design opens daily and is well worth a visit.

Opening exhibitions include Designer Maker User, Beazley Designs of the Year, and Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World. Visit the Design Museum website for details on current exhibits.
