Newly relocated to a cavernous landmark modernist building in Kensington, the Design Museum is where you’ll find the cool kids of current style and architecture waxing esoteric about their thought processes in themed exhibitions. The top floor balcony celebrates everyday objects (typeface, laptops) that have been designed well. In point of fact, it’s more of a gallery than a museum, appealing more to designers than to scholars. Everything is imbued with an awareness of how design can improve the lives of the less fortunate, a notion that’s at best Victorian and at worst condescending, and the curators occasionally appear to sell out to sponsors (a recent show rhapsodized about Cartier wristwatches), but the rewards may be richer if there’s a good temporary exhibition on. The shop has some interesting finds, as you might suspect.
