The first museum exhibition devoted to Daniel Weil’s work spans his thirty years at the forefront of design practice – from young Royal College of Art student, newly arrived from Argentina, to longstanding Partner at Pentagram who has taught and inspired the next generation.
The exhibition focuses on the process of design, about how a designer thinks and works. Weil, former RCA Professor of Industrial Design and Memphis participant, presents his experience and philosophy of design practice as a manifesto of ‘actions for designers’. Continuously inventive, Weil plays with fundamental elements of time, light, space and sound – always seeking a new connection, a fresh approach.
The pieces on display, from found objects to finished products, tell a story not of design, but of designing.
