Everyday items like the anglepoise lamp, the post box, and the London 2012 logo are presented as examples of extraordinary design and emblems of modernism in an exhibition which offers a snapshot of modern day design. Sections include National Identity, Plastics and Modernism as well as Style Through The Decades, featuring fashion from the 70s to the 90s, from Carnaby Street to the Kings Road.
