“I am very keen on all forms of design, including graphic design and fashion design, but under Terence Conran’s original ethos it should maintain a balance,” Mr Dyson said yesterday.”
The Chairman of London’s Design Museum, James Dyson, has quit, after declaring that the Museum has been pursuing a ‘style-over-substance’ strategy. I’m not sure how I feel about the Museum these days. I was very disappointed by the Manolo Blahnik exhibition and some of the Designer of the Year stuff but have enjoyed their coverage of Archigram (although the exhibits are too small). And their website is still woeful. Hmmm.
So, does Dyson have a valid point or is it a storm in a nicely-designed teacup? Discuss …
