Lie down at your desk with a self-pouring beer: Student designs from The Royal College of Art

A bed that turns into a desk, an ergonomic redesign of the NHS crutch, a self-pouring and stopping system for beer taps and a travel washing machine are a few of the designs on show at the Royal College of Art’s forthcoming student exhibition, The Show 2001. The exhibition will showcase the work of up-and-coming talent across categories such as product design, industrial design, computer-related design, communication art and design and ceramics and glass, to name a few. The creative reworking of familiar objects is one of the key objectives of the show, according to the RCA. The show runs from 29 June to 8 July at the RCA in west London.
