Design Museum Trip

Design Museum Trip

Year 7 DT Creative Rotation spent a glorious afternoon in the incredible recently refurbished Design Museum designed by John Pawson, known for his minimalist style.  The boys loved the dramatic sweep of the roof, the exposed structure and the immaculate attention to detail of the building.

They then had a lovely time trying out a selection of designer chairs including Thomas Heatherwick’s spun and Frank Gehry’s ‘wobble’ chairs.

A professional product designer ran a fascinating workshop in which the boys assembled and analysed a range of beautiful seating from the museum’s handling collection before designing their own for a specific client.
