Now open, Design Museum presents the first exhibition to examine the current global reach of California’s mid-century modernism. Picking up the story in the 1960s, the exhibition explores how the ideals of counterculture morphed into the tech culture of Silicon Valley, and how ‘Designed in California’ became a global phenomenon.
This ambitious survey brings together political posters and portable devices, but also looks beyond hardware to explore how designers are shaping some of our most common daily experiences. By turns empowering, addictive and troubling, Californian products have affected our lives to such an extent that in some ways we are all now Californians.
Entertain in the atrium, directly adjacent to the exhibition, to enjoy an exclusive private view of this fantastic show. Limited dates are now available to book for evening events until 15 October 2017.
