Dutch designer Hella Jongerius’ first major exhibition opens this week at the Design Museum, tracing her career from the Droog Design collective to the present. Widely regarded as a master at fusing traditional craftsmanship with advanced technology, Jongerius is known for her unconventional combinations of materials and techniques, and the way she lends industrial design an ’emotional quality’, says a Design Museum spokeswoman. The exhibition includes pieces such as Blizzard Bulb (pictured), a butane glass cylinder with a hand-blown glass shade and Soft Urn, which fuses the traditional shape of an urn with a modern material, plastic. The exhibition runs until 26 October.
