Camper: Life on Foot

Opening next week: exhibition, Design Museum, London, UK, 13 May - 01 November
Opening up Camper’s extensive archives publicly for the first time, the visitor can discover the design and manufacturing process of the company’s instantly recognisable products. Through sketched concepts, prototype products, and as-yet-unreleased pieces, this exhibition explores Camper’s approach to everything from conceptual retail spaces to their non-conformist, playful approach to advertising. Unveiling the social, cultural and environmental impact of a life on foot, new commissions also bring new insights to the pedestrian’s relationship to the built environment, as innovations such as wearable technologies and surveillance systems change our experience of walking.
