the DESIGN MUSEUM
Explore today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Are we living in the way that pioneering architects and designers throughout the 20th century predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change?
'Abundant treasures to savour' ★★★★ The Times
The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike.
Immerse yourself in a series of dreamlike passages and rooms designed by New York-based architects SO-IL and explore yesterday’s visions of the future – as avant-garde speculations are displayed alongside contemporary objects and new commissions.
Discover more than 200 objects and experiences to trace the key social and technological aspirations that have driven change in the home.
Historical notions of the mechanised home and the compact home are displayed alongside contemporary phenomena such as connected devices and the sharing economy.
