Before the Design Museum in London opens the doors to its new location in 2015, visitors in both the real and virtual worlds, will have had an opportunity to get up-close with the vastly larger space thanks to an immersive tool created by Stickyworld. A London-based company itself, Stickyworld builds interactive visual forums designed to foster discussion on projects ranging from design review, city planning and beyond. “Our business offers a new way of capturing feedback on the built environment,” says Michael Kohn, Stickyworld’s founder and CEO.

This is one of those times when we can’t even begin to fathom the changes happening around us. It’s particularly true for design, and an upcoming exhibition at London’s Design Museum seeks to explore its future in a new and provocative way. In conjunction with the pioneering furniture retailer Made.com, the museum’s show The Future is Here: A New Industrial Revolution will explore the potential for democratizing the design process via new means of production. One of the key components of the exhibition will be a publicly commissioned piece of furniture that will be market-ready when the show opens on July 24. Starting April 8, people will have a chance to vote on the shortlist of designs that were submitted last month in response to the show’s brief. We recently spoke to curator Alex Newsom about the show, its genesis and the implications for the future of design.
