Designers contribute to the design, production, marketing and messages that fill our world. Yet rarely does the public see what designers value personally, whether this might be a tool, or material, a prototype or a wood block, a drawing or something more ephemeral.
Over 100 internationally acclaimed designers from across the globe, from Tom Dixon OBE and Konstantin Grcic to Marijn Van Oossten, alongside bright new talent including Plymouth University alumni, have all been asked to place what they value in an envelope and send it to us.
Whether they value objects, concepts, beliefs or materials, this exhibition reveals why this is meaningful as well as being fun and spontaneous.
