New season, new Look! This autumn it’s time to get a new perspective on things at Regent’s Place with our ‘Shaped By Design’ programme of events. Whether you’re spending time at your desk or looking to get out and about nearby, either over lunch or after work, discover some great design-inspired exhibitions and events taking place in and around Regent’s Place.
First stop is just five minutes’ walk away along Euston Road where, from 7 September, the Wellcome Collection is showcasing the relationship between graphic design and health. Titled ‘Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?’, this free exhibition features 200 objects such as illuminated pharmacy designs and digital teaching aids. Considering the construction and communication of health messages, the pieces explore the role of graphic design to inform, persuade and empower populations across the world. Drawn from several collections, the exhibition features work by influential twentieth century graphic designers alongside pieces from studios and individual designers working today.
If you fancy a spot of design-inspired retail therapy (who doesn’t?), head to The Conran Shop in Marylebone High Street for a London Design Festival window takeover! On display from 16 September to 13 October, PINCH and OurLondon/Vodka are collaborating with The Conran Shop to create bespoke design themed displays.
