Conran Foundation Collection at Design Museum

Thomas Heatherwick’s Conran Foundation Collection at the Design Museum is a £30 000 smorgasbord of collectibles accrued in supermarkets, websites, catalogues and flea markets. The collection’s abundance of ‘anonymously designed’ consumer products, such as its papier mâché coffin and technicolour ketchup, pays homage to the British taste for the eclectic and the absurd. The show runs until 21 March at the Design Museum, Shad Thames, London SE1.
