Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Culture -

“De­signed in Cal­i­for­nia” is the new “Made In Italy” in the world of de­sign, ac­cord­ing to De­sign Mu­seum’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion. Ex­am­in­ing the state’s cur­rent im­pact and global in­flu­ence on con­tem­po­rary de­sign, ‘Cal­i­for­nia: De­sign­ing Free­dom’ delves deep into the Sil­i­con Val­ley tech cul­ture and its pool of fresh ideas. Com­pris­ing more than 200 ob­jects that are cu­rated into five the­matic sec­tions, this in­trigu­ing ex­hi­bi­tion em­pha­sises on the facets of free­dom, and chal­lenges our con­cept and ex­pe­ri­ences of “de­sign”. From Emory Dou­glas’s Black Pan­thers posters to Waymo’s self-driv­ing car, LSD blot­ting pa­pers to pocket size Snap, Inc. con­nected sun­glasses, this ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence will have you in a trance as you draw a con­nec­tion be­tween Cal­i­for­nia’s past and fu­ture. Un­til Oc­to­ber 15 at the De­sign Mu­seum, Lon­don. www.de­sign­mu­seum.org
