Discover more about the designers and makers who are using new technology to change the shape of both product design and our future in this special guided tour.
The landscape for design and making is changing, and with it the language of objects. The development of Computer Aided Design, new materials and digital production technologies has revolutionised the tools and opportunities available to designers. The Language of Process: How new materials and technologies are changing product design showcases a range of innovative products, by some of the world’s leading creative designers including Tom Dixon, Marcel Wanders, Assa Ashuach and Tord Boontje, using cutting edge approaches to design and manufacture. The work may surprise, delight or even offend, but it will challenge preconceptions of what is possible, and the future of product design. Join us for this special tour of the exhibition.
