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.
Curated by Sea Design, the exhibition focuses on the geometric identity created by consultancy Roundel, which was used on British Rail’s freight trains in the 1980s and 1990s.
Rethinking Urban Mobility has been conducted by companies including Arup and the London Transport Museum, and looks at the impact of developments in transport such as self-driving cars on cities
