This project was inspired in part by The Memphis group of the 1980s and a small representation of their work is featured at the new Design Museum https://designmuseum.org/memphis which we took the whole of Year 8 to this week.Yr8 Design Museum Visit Jan 2017
We took the whole of Year8 to the new Design Museum in Kensington housed in the old Commonwealth Centre (originally opened by HRH The Queen in 1962). We visited the new permanent collection of design classics (mainly from the 70s and 80s) and also the Beasley Awards which champions innovative new design concepts. http://designmuseum.org/exhibitions/beazley-designs-of-the-year
It was a great day out and good to link the interior design and pattern work that we have been doing in class to what was on offer in the museum.
Jakub P (Yr8) created a fantastic collage interpretation of the Vanitas still life genre.
