The Design Museum is one of the world’s leading museums devoted to contemporary design in every form from furniture to graphics, and architecture to industrial design. It is working to place design at the centre of contemporary culture. It demonstrates both the richness of the creativity to be found in all forms of design, and its importance. Design is a hugely fertile field of inventive new work, as well as a key component underpinning the modern economy. It provides a means for understanding the contemporary world, and, potentially, for making it a better place. The Design Museum’s mission is to celebrate, entertain and inform.
The Design Museum has been successful at its present location in communicating the importance of design in shaping the modern and contemporary world, and the ways we understand that world. However, the size and location of the existing facility present inherent limitations to the institution's ability to fulfill its potential. Lord Cultural Resources conducted a Feasibility Study and Business Plan for the relocation of the Design Museum to Holland Park.
