New Design Museum Opening in London

The new Design Museum 2016 will open in its new home on Kensington High Street, on 24 November this year, the result of an £83 million transformation of a listed landmark building from the 1960s.

Following a long search for larger premises to expand its activities, in 2008 the Design Museum selected the former Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington High Street, West London, as its new home. This unique landmark from the 1960s, a Grade II* listed building that had stood vacant for over a decade, will be transformed by a design team led by John Pawson who will make the building fit for a 21st century museum, whilst at the same time retaining its unique spatial quality.

Today, we bring you the images of this amazing space that will have, for sure, a lot of importance in the design world!

Take a look!

Since it opened its doors in 1989 the Design Museum has displayed everything from an AK-47 to Lady Gaga’s Gareth Pugh-designed bin bag dress. It has staged over 100 exhibitions, welcomed over five million visitors and showcased the work of some of the world’s most celebrated designers including Paul Smith, Zaha Hadid, Jonathan Ive, Miuccia Prada, Frank Gehry, Eileen Gray and Dieter Rams.
