Design Museum permanent exhibition, view of roof
Design Museum permanent exhibition, view of roof
The permanent exhibition on the top floor has displays showing the progress of design, for example one progression has typewriters and computers, another has clocks. There are displays showing manufacturing methods, from a lightweight chair using traditional-looking wood to 3D computer printing using extruded plastic.
This view also shows how the top floor exhibits are within the parabolic roof space, the massive beams coming down to the floor level of this top floor.
Design Museum, London
In 2016 the Design Museum moved to the site in Kensington formerly occupied by the Commonwealth Institute, incorporating its notable parabolic roof into a new building.
The museum covers product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. It was founded in 1989 on a site in Bermondsey, by Tower Bridge.
