Material Tales: The Life of Things touring exhibition
As we face the realities of the Earth’s limited resources, designers and users are unpicking how objects are made, and at what material cost.
What are the materials that go into the objects that define our day to day lives? And how has material innovation changed the ways in which we live today?
Material Tales is the first dedicated touring exhibition developed by the Design Museum. The exhibition charts the journey of the materials that have defined modern life through their origins, uses and evolution to current environmental and industrial consequences.
Featuring iconic exhibits from the Design Museum collection, as well as innovative materials in development today, the exhibition will inform and inspire visitors to understand and care for the complex processes that go into everyday objects.
