Time Machines: Daniel Weil and the Art of Design
14 May 2014 – 25 August 2014
‘Every design exhibition should be as thoughtful and engaging as this one’
Marcus Field, Evening Standard
Thirty-five years ago, Daniel Weil arrived from his native Argentina to study design at the Royal College of Art. His reaction to political and post-industrial freedom produced the seminal Bag Radio in 1981, followed by a continuous series of inventive objects, products and interiors.
This exhibition focuses on the process of design, and how designers think and work. It explores how Weil interprets sources, chooses projects, uses colour and creates form. A longstanding Partner at Pentagram, former RCA Professor of Industrial Design and Memphis participant, Weil presents his experience and philosophy of design practice as a manifesto of ‘actions for designers’.
Guest Curator is Martina Margetts, Senior Tutor in Critical & Historical Studies at the Royal College of Art.
