Urban Gifts

August 2009

Super Contemporary

Super Contemporary at London’s Design Museum is the institution’s first major show of commissioned works, and sees 15 design studios making ‘gifts’ to the city. In a climate of relative sobriety, the responses of participants such as BarberOsgerby, Neville Brody, El Ultimo Grito, Paul Smith, Wayne Hemingway, Thomas Heatherwick and Paul Cocksedge are tinged more with affection than barbs and irony.
