Enjoy a private tour of 'Home Futures' at the Design Museum

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 - 15:15

Enjoy a private tour of the new exhibition Home Futures at the Design Museum.

Explore today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Are we living in the way that pioneering architects and designers throughout the 20th century predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change?
 

The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike. Immerse yourself in a series of dreamlike passages and rooms designed by New York-based architects SO-IL and exploring yesterday’s visions of the future – as avant-garde speculations are displayed alongside contemporary objects and new commissions. Discover more than 200 objects and experiences to trace the key social and technological aspirations that have driven change in the home. Historical notions of the mechanised home and the compact home are displayed alongside contemporary phenomena such as connected devices and the sharing economy.

‘At IKEA we have always been curious about innovative technology and passionate about life at home. That’s why we are delighted to partner with the Design Museum on this exhibition. Collaborations are a vital part of our learning process and we hope it will inspire you.’ -  IKEA Museum.

Tours start from £250 + VAT. A Private Viewing of Home Futures is complimentary when you book a breakfast or evening event in the atrium.
