Design Museum: The Future Is Here / by Nick Ierodiaconou

00 will be participating in the Design Museum's exhibit, THE FUTURE IS HERE: A NEW INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION, open from 24 July - 29 October. 00 will be exhibiting pieces by OpenDesk, a platform for open source furniture — designs available to print yourself or have it made for you, and Wikihouse, an open source construction set whose aim is to allow anyone to design, download and ‘print’ CNC-milled plywood houses and components.


We are in the midst of a transformation in the way we design, make and use the objects that we depend on. It is a transformation that will affect commerce, industry, and the way that we all live as profoundly as any previous Industrial Revolution.

Want to know your additive manufacturing from your 3d printing, and find out how the 'new industrial revolution' will impact your life? Or just want to understand more about how the things around you are made? Then visit The Future is Here.

The exhibition explores how the boundaries between designer, manufacturer and consumer are becoming increasingly blurred. Significant changes in the way objects are made, the materials they are made of and the type of objects that people use have the potential to affect commerce, industry and the environment as profoundly as any past Industrial Revolution. See some of these manufacturing techniques demonstrated in The Future is Here Factory and find out how they will change the designed world around you.
