Future Observatory opens display space at the Design Museum

First display features six leading design researchers from across the UK


Future Observatory and the Design Museum today open a free display space dedicated to design research responding to environmental crises. 

Located on the museum’s second floor balcony, the Future Observatory display is conceived as a permanent space to champion cutting-edge design research and introduce visitors to thought-provoking and innovative ways in which designers are responding to climate breakdown. The display signals the importance of placing design at the heart of the green transition, for Future Observatory and the Design Museum, as well as the broader design industry.

The first studios, labs and researchers to be exhibited are CLIMAVORE, Dark Matter Labs, Dunne & Raby, Faber Futures, Julia King and The Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment. Visitors will learn about a diverse range of research from a variety of design disciplines, from experimental textile dying techniques to radical ideas about the future of building.
