Contemporary Design Find: Design Museum London

Innovation is taken seriously at London’s Design Museum. As well as showcasing the importance of cutting edge design across all aspects of our daily lives, it is currently embarking on an ambitious design journey of its own with a planned relocation from its riverside headquarters to the capital’s museum quarter in West London in 2015, under the direction of minimalist designer John Pawson.

Until then, a series of contemporary exhibitions spanning everything from international fashion to everyday function complements the museum’s permanent collection that embodies key design pieces that have contributed in shaping the motions of the modern world.
