V&A Presents Design 1900

19 June 2021 V&A

V&A presents Design 1900  explores how design shapes and is shaped by how we live, work, travel, communicate and consume. Housed within the museum’s former 20th Century Gallery, this newly curated space brings together leading design objects alongside the first redisplay of V&A’s celebrated Rapid Response Collecting programme since its founding in 2014.

As part of the gallery, new acquisitions will go on display for the first time at the V&A, including Margaret Calvert and Jock Kinneir’s iconic British road signage system, Kim Kardashian’s Selfish book, Nike’s Nigeria football shirt for the 2018 World Cup and a one-ofa-kind desk designed by Future Systems for Condé Nast Chairman Jonathan Newhouse.

Aiming to spark the imagination of children and young people, the objects on display in the gallery directly support the AQA Design & Technology and Art & Design specification, creating connections between in-school learning and what’s on display. The six thematic displays in the gallery address the challenges facing society today and draw on the museum’s rich collections of fashion, digital and product design alongside photography, architecture and furniture from the last 120-plus years.
