I was lucky to get a sneak preview of the Design Museum on Sunday and I will definitely be returning. It opens this week, great location, great meeting place and ‘design is all around us’ is my mantra now leading up to Christmas. Design is the arts and sciences working together creatively.
A stroll through the city, coffee in the sunshine and something beautiful at the Barbican. Hundreds of free-poured aluminium arms suspended from the ceiling by thin cables, designed by Omer Arbel and produced by Bocci.
Once attracted and or inspired its always worth investigating further. I got home, logged on to the Internet and found on the Barbican website (when you search Omer Arbel) a great video showing, Behind the Scenes: Building Bocci and Omer Abel’s 44. Wow, Creative teamwork in action.
