Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

On the 24th of November 2016, The new Design Museum in London opened its doors. Based in the Kensington High Street Area, the Museums exterior architecture was designed by a team lead by Dutch Architect Rem Koolhaas. It’s Interior space was designed by John Pawson, who wanted to create a “beautiful building, people will feel good in” and boy has he achieved that. The Design museums impressive angled and spacing really has the wow factor. The museum’s content does not disappoint either, with classic design spanning the ages, many household names are featured in its permanent collection. From Anglepoise to the Iphone, every design practice is covered. We can not recommend the Design Museum in London enough.

We really enjoyed NEW OLD, a pop up exhibition which explored the potential for design to enhance the experience of our later lives. This table featured here was an experiential element of the exhibition in which the old and young were encouraged to sit down and ask each other questions. The whole exhibition was very thought provoking. From a design point of view, we love how great the HAY upholstered AAC22 chair looks among all this greenery!

‘The drawings of the Bouroullec brothers are works of independent artistic value, whose tender, often cross-hatched and at times almost naïve-seeming pictorial motifs create their own unique world of forms. They act as important steps within the design process to gradually move toward the ultimate proposal of a new object. The designers proceed like natural scientists who investigate and continually retest the forms of their own array of ideas with a spirit of curiosity.’ Mateo Kries Director of Vitra Design Museum

Anouk draws her inspiration from life. “For me the small things in life do matter. Home made cooking, having a good freshly brewed

coffee, spending time at my dinner table with my family and friends, seeing art, smelling fresh vegetables or flowers, I am able to see an taste colours in everything! That’s what makes me happy and enables me to design products.”
