One-Off designs

Doodling, furniture hacking, 3D printing and tote bag design are on the agenda at the next Design Museum Late event, all in the name of celebrating One-Off design.

A series of workshops will allow visitors to create their very own unique design pieces, and the evening’s talks, demonstrations and events will all explore the idea ‘one-off’.

Lovely east London design collective People of Print will be helping run the One-Off Analogue strand of the evening, hosting a screen printing workshop where visitors can print images drawn from the Design Museum collection onto a tote bag in vivid neons.

Over in the Design Museum café, a member of the Design Museum team will oversee a session where iconic designs from the collection are reinterpreted through collage and drawing, with the results posted on the museum’s social media accounts.

A more futuristic line of questioning is taken in The Future is Here event, which explores the possibilities of 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC cutting.

Designer Sylvia Weidenbach, fashion textile designer Ejing Zhang and sculptor John Rainey will be examining the techniques through presentations of their work and an open-table discussion with visitors.

Those looking for a more three-dimensional approach can head to illustrator Patrick Schmidt’s session Doodle Lab, where furniture will be ‘hacked’ and customised by a team of illustrators to create new, unique pieces.

The evening will also see the Design Museum collaborate with the Ron Arad-designed Design Museum Holon, transforming the inner walls into a digital canvas displaying one-off design prototpes from Isreal.
