Design Frontiers

18 – 24 Sep 2017
Terrace Rooms
& West Wing Galleries

Encounter works from 30 international designers pushing the frontiers of the design world.

From Harry Beck’s iconic map design for the London Underground to creatives like Vivienne Westwood and Gareth Pugh pushing the boundaries of fashion, London has long been regarded as the centre for design innovation. Design Frontiers cements that reputation, with thought-provoking and inspiring work from the 30 designers renowned for shaping and leading their respective disciplines.

From automotive to fashion, product design to graphics, Design Frontiers takes over the Terrace Rooms and West Wing Galleries with a series of installations and exhibitions showing how these designers push the frontiers of the design world.

“Design Frontiers will provide a compelling platform, encouraging new conversations around the importance of innovation and creativity. Together with these exceptional visionaries, we can learn from the past and look to the future.”

Christopher Tuner, Director and Curator of Design Frontiers
