I love the London Transport Museum, so was pleased to be tipped off about an exhibition they currently have running titled 'Designology’.
The exhibition closes on April 23rd, so there is still plenty of time to get down there and ‘discover the art and aesthetics behind the functional and familiar’.
The exhibition explores how design is encountered in our everyday journeys and how this has evolved over the last century, as well as looking at how our travel experiences might develop in the future. From the visual to the virtual and from Victorian engineering genius to modernist masterpieces, designology uncovers the fascinating designs and processes behind London’s moving metropolis.
Highlights of the exhibition will include posters from the golden age of travel, historic maps, tickets and signage, and a pop up design Studio where visitors will be able to find out more about contemporary design innovation. As visitors make their way through the exhibition they will begin to recognise the underlying design that surrounds them - design hidden by its familiarity in everyday life.
Closes 23rd April 2017
