A Tour Exploring Designer Maker User Sold out

Design and Play Multisensory Tour

Join the Design Museum for a multi-sensory tour of its permanent exhibition, Designer Maker User, followed by a workshop exploring the relationship between design and play

What to expect

From Froebel’s gifts to architectural playgrounds, designers have shaped the ways we play at all stages of life. An effective strategy to learn and create, play is also a vital tool for designers in creating new work.

This tour, specially designed for visually impaired visitors to the museum, will explore the relations between design and play through the permanent exhibition, Designer Maker User. Starting with key objects from the history of design, the tour shall go on to explore how new technologies such as 3D printing and coding are changing the meaning of play.

Following the tour there will also be a workshop session where participants will co-design new objects that respond to the theme of the tour.
