Waste Age - What Can Design Do?

Waste Age: What Can Design Do?

Opening at the Design Museum on October 23, Waste Age will explore how new design ideas are redefining the things we use every day. From fashion to food, electronics to construction, even packaging itself - transforming our trash into treasure could provide our path out of the Waste Age.

The exhibition will feature some of the visionary designers who are reinventing our relationship with waste, including Formafantasma, Stella McCartney, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, Fernando Laposse, Bethany Williams, Phoebe English and Natsai Audrey Chieza.

"We must face the problem of waste - we can no longer ignore what happens to things when we get rid of them," commented curator Gemma Curtin. "Instead of thinking of objects as things that have an end life, they can have many lives. This is not just an exhibition it is a campaign, and we all have an active part in our future."
