V&A British Design 1948 - 2012

Having not been to London for an age I had a list as long as my arm of things I wanted to do - however as with all great plans it changed and I only achieved a few of the to dos on my list! One of the exhibitions I wanted to see was at the V&A, British Design 1948-2012.  It was lovely to be greeted by these amazing columns in the entrance, great designs from the 50's which I love.

The exhibition was by its nature eclectic, ranging from textiles by Lucienne Day to chairs through the decades to Concord.  It worked its way through a wealth of political, social, technological  and scientific developments charting the progress of many key aspects of design.
It was fascinating seeing the development of products but somewhat alarming as I could remember many of them from the first time around!  It did however make me reflect on the pace at which design changes and the longevity of some design pieces.
