Exploring the Role of Design in Old Age

The Sky Planter has been included in the NEW OLD exhibition at the Design Museum, London. The exhibition explores the role that designers and design may play in enhancing our later lives.

NEW OLD focuses on six key areas of ageing; Ageing, Identity, Home, Community, Working and Mobility. The Sky Planter was included as it contributes to creating healthier home and work environments by bringing more plants into those living spaces, without sacrificing floor-space.

Our population is ageing rapidly so the exhibition looks at how design can help people lead fuller, healthier and more rewarding lives into old age. Exhibitors included Yves Béhar /fuseproject, Konstantin Grcic, Future Facility, Special Projects, IDEO and Priestman Goode. And the exhibition was curated by Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art.

The NEW OLD exhibition takes place in the Helene and Johannes Huth Gallery on Level 2 of the Design Museum from 12th January to the 19th February 2017 from 10am - 6pm each day. The exhibition is free to enter.
