The wall of design icons brought back so many memories, from the Trim Phone to the Sinclair Spectrum. A great way to spend a few hours, if like me you just love good practical designs. And the shop!! had to spend some £s there. And...More
I went to see the free exhibition and was expecting something different. Indeed I had been in the Design Museum years ago in its old location, so I was a bit disappointed. The architecture of the building is amazing. There were two other exhibitions on....More
