Exhibitions: Exploring the Future at London's 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.

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.
