The Design Museum in London is one of the world wide leading design museums that shows every kind of contemporaneous design: from furniture to graphs, architecture and industrial design.
Terence Conran founded the predecessor of the design museum, the Boilerhouse in the cellar of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London already 25 years ago. The Boilerhouse grew steadily from 1989 on and had to move. In that movement it also received its current name.
The Design Museum made itself a duty to include design into cultural landscapes and to entertain and inform at the same time. Meanwhile it became an established institution in the international design scene and more than 200,000 visitors pass the gates every year.
