The Future is Here: A New Industrial Revolution
Design Museum London, UK, Until 29 October 2013
Design is in the midst of a transformation. A transformation that is set to affect commerce, industry, and our way of living as profoundly as did the Industrial Revolution. This exhibition explores how the boundaries between designer, manufacturer, and consumer are becoming increasingly blurred. Production techniques are demonstrated in The Future is Here factory, where you can find out the difference between additive manufacturing and 3D printing, to name but one example of how the ‘new industrial revolution’ will impact your life, and can come to understand a bit about how the things that surround you are made.
