New Old - Designing for our Future Selves

New Old: Designing for our Future Selves

'New Old: Designing for our Future Selves' exhibition will be on view at the Pratt Manhattan Gallery from February 7 through May 23, exploring cutting-edge design solutions for our rapidly aging society. The design concepts are centered around six themes: Ageing, Identity, Home, Community, Working, and Mobility.

From robotic clothing to driverless cars, New Old rethinks design approaches that will help people lead fuller, healthier, and more rewarding lives into old age. Curated by Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor at the Royal College of Art, this is a touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London, in partnership with the Helen Hamlyn Trust.

New Old features design commissions by Yves BĂ©har / fuseproject, Konstantin Grcic, Future Facility, Special Projects, IDEO, and PriestmanGoode. This installment is updated with work by five faculty members from Pratt's School of Design, including Mitchell Reece Johnson, Andrea Katz, Karol Murlak, Alex Schweder, and Keena Suh, along with additional US-based projects.
