‘By Design’ in partnership with Sir John Soane's Museum
By Design, a talk series in partnership with Sir John Soane’s Museum in which leading designers discuss an object that has inspired them in some way, and through it discuss and dissect their own design practice. From October 2018 – April 2019, Will Gompertz, Arts Editor at the BBC, and Alice Rawsthorn, design writer and critic, will co-host the series exploring how design has impacted the lives of six internationally-renowned designers, framed around one item which has informed their careers. The series will reflect on the power of objects – large or small, mundane or exceptional, aesthetic or utilitarian – to spark new ideas, and act as a spur for different forms of creativity.
