I read with interest Hugh Pearman’s article Room for improvement, concerning the Design Museum (Private View, DW 9 March).
I would like to suggest that until it widens the range of exhibits and introduces more fun and functionality, the prices are brought down.
There are so many elements that have been excluded from the Design Museum’s exhibitions, that non-designer visitors must think design only consists of either soap-powder boxes or telephones.
It would be great to see a larger variation of design in the museum. The amount of artefacts available from past and present would be enough to fill a dome.
Crikey hang on a minute!
