Whether you’ve already visited the Design Museum’s new home or not, SEEN recommends that you watch this video by Nowness to appreciate its views through the lens of interior architect, John Pawson. The new Design Museum opened its doors on 24th November as the result of a collaborative coalition of designers: John Pawson, OMA, Allies and Morrison, West 8 and Arup, to give a new lease of life to the 1962 Modernist building in Kensington.
Parabola is Prescott & Conran’s all-day dining space at the new Design Museum: high profile food and drinks at one of the most high profile museums in the world. The museum boasts a restaurant, a cocktail bar and a coffee and juice counter, as well as the Design Museum’s Members’ Room and private dining facilities, all housed within this striking modernist building, imaginatively renovated by John Pawson.
SEEN loves to see the beautiful designs that grace the Salone di Mobile. Very often these pieces make their way to Britain and particularly to London, so we keep a keen eye on the prestigious design fair.
London is all about new experiences, and there’s nowhere better to be than the newly opened Design Museum this weekend 25th – 27th November, 2016 for the Weekend Open. Come and celebrate the museum’s new location at 224-238 High Street Kensington, from 10:00 until 18:00 (last admission, 17:00).
SEEN has always felt that a visit to any museum in this fair city is incomplete without a trip to the gift shop. Whether you’re buying a handsome book, some fabulous piece of art or just a postcard, there are many treasures to be found and the Design Museum is no exception, even as it moves from Shad Thames to spectacular new premises in Kensington High Street.
