Niet schrikken dit is een Engels artikel. Waarom? Nou, er gebeuren zoveel toffe dingen in Engeland (en dan vooral Londen) dat we dat graag met jullie delen. Helaas voor ons kunnen we zelf niet altijd daarheen om te kijken what’s the fuss about. Daarom hebben we de hulp ingeroepen van Dill Sagoo. Hij is een goeie vriend en lifestyle enthousiast en zal zo af en toe jullie verrijken met nieuwtjes vanuit Engeland!
Recently we travelled to the newly opened London Design Museum to explore the refit and experience the opening exhibitions. Opened to the public on 24 November 2016 and based on Kensington High St. In the heart of London these photos reveal the recently remodelled interior of the London Design Museum.
London based architectural designer John Pawson was chosen to transform the interior of the former Commonwealth institute building in South Kensington with Willmott Dixon Interiors carrying out the £20 million refit. The conversion provides almost 10,000 sq meters of gallery space, which is triple the size of that of the previous location in Shad Thames and features interior furnishings by Swiss furniture brand Vitra.
The spaces in the building are all based around a large atrium area featuring wood lined and glass walkways with stairs that double up as seats, a reception area, a cafe and a bookstore.
The opening exhibitions include Fear and Love which consists of work by some of the most innovative practitioners in design and architecture and Beazley Designs of the Year which celebrates design that promotes and delivers change. Both exhibitions are open to the public till Early 2017.
