RCA celebrates ten years of Helen Hamlyn Centre work

The Royal College of Art is to host an exhibition celebrating ten years of European collaborative projects by Helen Hamlyn Centre research associates.

The exhibition – called Closeup – will showcase the latest research associate projects, and look at previous projects involving graduates and companies from across Europe.

Exhibits, including furniture, products, communications and films, will explore issues such as design for ageing, inclusive design, workplace design and design for patient safety.

Jeremy Myerson, director of the Helen Hamlyn Centre, says, ‘The Closeup exhibition shows how partnerships between new RCA graduates from all over Europe and progressive European manufacturers can create new design ideas to improve quality of life.’

The show will be curated by the Helen Hamlyn Centre and supported by the European Commission Representation in the UK. It will be held at the RCA from 25 September to 6 October.
