Hair Style

I’d heard the Design Museum had moved from its former 1940s banana warehouse in Shad Thames to former Commonwealth Institute in Kensington High Street, so on a recent trip to London I went to take a look. The new building is impressive, although I found its minimalist architecture quite stark and uninviting. The museum’s permanent collection is on the top floor and showcases key designs that have shaped the modern world. It tells the history of mass production up to the digital age and spans architecture, fashion, furniture, product and graphic design, digital media and transport. I came across this thing as well, a jacket made from human hair! The designer Alix Bizet, is exploring sustainable and practical materials for the future, so I guess it makes sense – bit creepy though.
