Super Contemporary

Design Museum has joined forces with Beefeater 24 to celebrate the fearlessly progressive spirit of London’s greatest creative minds, past and present. London thinks, designs and makes like no other city; it creates and the world follows. A magnet for mavericks and freethinkers, London has nurtured a creative community that continues to rival all other design capitals.

These creative networks have spurred each other on. This exhibition will illustrate London’s pursuit of new, better and braver, across architecture, industrial design, graphics, fashion and communications alike. Endlessly pushing at the forefront of design and constantly inventing for new worlds, London’s design output is continually Super Contemporary.

At the heart of the exhibition are fifteen commissions from some of London’s most dynamic creatives, as a group they demonstrate the diverse approaches to design in London:

Bus Shelter by David Adjaye. Gone with the Wind by Ron Arad. Listening Station by BarberOsgerby. Freedom Space by Neville Brody. Batterseum by Nigel Coates. Rain It In by Paul Cocksedge. London Transport by Tom Dixon. Horatio’s Garden by El Ultimo Grito with Urban Salon. Thames Pin by Kit Grover. Vision for the city of London by Zaha Hadid.
