There’ll be no escaping the World Cup over the next couple of months and London’s Design Museum is showing its colours with a display of customised football lights. Created by product designers Rainer Spehl and Martino Gamper, each Coming Home light combines a classic 32-panel black and white football made of composite material, with an encased cold light source fitting. The lights will hang from the ceilings of the museum’s foyer and stairwell from 24 May to 30 June. Spehl and Gamper hope to find a company to put the light into mass production.
A shrinking national economy is now a likely backdrop for the design industry – which despite having a proven track record for growth – has been neglected in this budget.
