In the Making


Acclaimed design duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby join forces with the Design Museum London to celebrate the intricate beauty of the production process that captures and displays 20 different objects mid-manufacture.

From a £2 coin and a selection of diamonds to a cricket bat, a banknote and the designers’ renowned Olympic Torch, the selection of objects chosen by BarberOsgerby vary from ostentatious designer creations to objects of everyday use. The variety of the objects on display allow visitors to gain extensive insight into multiple manufacturing processes involved in making the things around us.

Furthermore, each object was carefully selected due to its unexpected quality in the moments, hours or days before each assumes its final, recognisable form.

In the Making is on display at the Design Museum, London until 4 May 2014.
