Design Council, British by Design Exhibition

Design Council, British by Design Exhibition

British by Design’ was a Design Council exhibition highlighting the contribution of British designers to the development of landmark products for major clients. Glass and stainless steel structures provided secure display cases for an array of objects, while graphic posters explained the design principles behind exhibits and features, often too small to fully appreciate on their own. Objects exhibited at the launch included a personal organiser, modular salt and pepper grinders and a Triumph motorbike. As part of the commission, the designers also resolved visitor flow and sign posting throughout the building.
