NEW OLD exhibit at the Design Museum
Taking a break from the countless hours spent every week in the prototyping workshops, I decided to visit NEW OLD, an exciting exhibition about design for ageing at the Design Museum in Kensington. It asks the question, how can design can help people lead fuller, healthier and more rewarding lives into old age? How can designers can meet the challenge of a rapidly ageing society? Being a designer who's current project centers around "transformation" and "self acceptance", it was fascinating to be able to observe a very similar philosophy from a different context. From robotic clothing to driverless cars, the exhibition examined the contextual issues of a transforming life from young to old and how design can better approach this universal condition.
