Image courtesy Made in Ratio.Launched just this spring, Made in Ratio has quickly begun making a name for itself in the design world. The London-based company's Supernova table garnered a Product of the Year Award and the firm itself was heralded as Newcomer of the Year at the Mixology Awards, work in the contract field. The collection started off big, with creative director Brodie Neill creating a range of seating, lighting, tables and storage that play with color, form and material. Today, we're delighted to share Brodie's thoughts on becoming a designer and his design process as part of our series highlighting younger designers. If you're in London next month for the Design Festival, Made in Ratio will be showing at designjunction. Stop by and check out the pieces.

Exhibitions: Exploring the Future at London's Design Museum

A centerpiece of an upcoming exhibition at London's Design Museum is a crowd-sourced piece of furniture. It's an idea that Made.com has pioneered in the last several years. Image courtesy Design Museum.

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.
