This special exhibition showcases a selection of cutting edge design for the home by both well-established industry figures and emerging talent. A broad range of domestic products, from furniture to wallpaper and textiles, lighting to technology, is on show, spilling out into the museum’s gardens with a display of innovative garden furniture design. As well as highlighting local design from Hackney and London, the show looks further afield and includes work by leading national and international designers.
The Geffrye Museum has a strong track record in spotting and showcasing the most exciting makers and domestic style trends today. The exhibition coincides with the museum’s centenary year and celebrates one of its original purposes - to inspire the local furniture-making industry.
A programme of events highlighting contemporary domestic design is running throughout the show, including talks by the curator and featured designers, a debate on the future of design, workshops and activities for children.
The Geffrye is located in Shoreditch just minutes from the City of London. It is easily reached by public transport. The nearest stations are Hoxton and Old Street.
Admission to the museum including the eleven period rooms and herb and period gardens is free.
We'll buy tickets on the day of the visit.
