Designs of the Year

Awesome architecture, futuristic fashion, fun furniture, groovy graphics: all these and more are celebrated in the Design Museum’s annual Designs of the Year awards and accompanying exhibition. As the museum likes to boast, someday this stuff is going to be on display in other museums. We never miss this show. Every iteration turns up products that are life-saving, lovely to look at or just so clever you really, really wish they’d been your idea.
