Your favourite things

Crowdsourced Wall

We are surrounded by objects. Millions of them fill our homes, our workplaces and the environment around us. Some objects are functional and practical, while others are decorative and sculptural. Whether we use them every day or just a few times in our lives, they are important because of the personal connection we have with them.

This is where you come in

What object do you want to see in the new Design Museum?

These objects, along with your reasons for choosing them, will be featured at the entrance of the exhibition.

• If you were given £20, what object would you buy?

• Of the objects you own, which do you feel is the most practical?

• What object do you find most beautiful?

• If you could put anything in the Design Museum what would it be?

• You can choose to share either one or two objects
