the exhibition illustrates the breadth of work and scale of achievement of each of the four winners across the categories of london design, design innovation, emerging design and lifetime achievement.
visitors are invited to room 55, clore study area to explore each designer’s work, in an exhibition curated and designed by okolo.
this year’s exhibition, inspired by the idea of a card house, will guide visitors through texts, images, illustrations, prototypes, materials and objects, narrating the creative story of each designer. designers will be presented not just as creative individuals, but in the context of their creative world, understanding their signature styles, and exploring the influences behind their work.
