London's Design Museum to host John Lewis exhibition
The Design Museum will mark the 150th anniversary of the opening of the first John Lewis store on Oxford Street in London with a pop-up exhibition which explores the design stories behind some of the most popular products in British high street history.
Showcasing over 100 products, including current best sellers and historical pieces from the Design Museum’s own collection, ‘John Lewis: How We Live Today’ will look at the retailer’s influence on the British shopping landscape across a century and a half of trading, and considers the design thinking behind some of the everyday items that shape our lives.
With products ranging washing machines to radios, clothes to kitchen utensils, the exhibition will also look at how innovations in commercial design have played out on the shop floor.
‘John Lewis: How We Live Today’ will run from 8 to 21 September 2014 at the Design Museum in London’s Shad Thames.
