Tom Dyckhoff presents this design themed edition of the Culture Show, which examines the latest ‘hacking’ craze – where online design communities interact to reinvent and create new objects. As artists are now able to download and ‘open-source’ design tweaks, is the ‘Great Designer’ poised to disappear?
We explore the impact of football on five decades of men’s fashion as Manchester’s National Museum of Football unveils its ‘Strike A Pose’ exhibition. Ever since the abolition of the footballers’ maximum wage, players from George Best to Beckham and Balotelli have been bringing bling to menswear.
As a new exhibition focusing on extraordinary yet everyday objects opens at the Design Museum in London, Charlie Luxton meets design futurologists Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby, both professors of interactivity at the Royal College of Art who have taught and mentored some of today’s most successful and daring designers.
Writer and Design Critic, Alice Rawsthorn discusses her new book ‘Hello World: where design meets life’ and assesses the changing role that design can play in modern society. All this as well as a look at the photography from the life and work of Philip Treacy, milliner to the stars.
