Home FuturesThe Design Museum concludes 2018 with an exhibition about the idea of Home Futures. A place where people engage with design in the most important aspects of their lives, homes are rapidly developing thanks to economic and technological forces. Unaffordable prices, the spread of connected devices and the sharing economy are further developing the concept of a home and this exhibition asks: 'what is the future of our living spaces?' More than 150 objects and experiences, from furniture to robotics and sharing economy to nomadic lifestyles, explore how our idea of domestic life is changing.

 

About Design Museum

In 2016 the Design Museum moves from is long standing home at Shad Thames to a venue three times the size, the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street. The Grade II* listed building has been transformed by a design team led by John Pawson to include the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning, 202-seat Bakala Auditorium and a dedicated gallery to display its permanent collection, accessible free of charge.
