Designs On Britain




Discover how much of the most iconic British design was produced by immigrants to this country.

20th-century design in the UK was profoundly shaped by the arrival of pioneering Jewish émigré designers from continental Europe. They brought with them a knowledge of modernism and radically transformed the practice and language of British design.

On display are iconic posters for London Underground, the General Post Office and the War Office created by designers including Dorrit Dekk, FHK Henrion and Hans Schleger.

See the classic designs that have been embraced by generations – a ‘70s Raleigh Chopper bike, an early Marble Run toy, and the London Transport bus stop sign.
