You may be wondering what pens, taxis and trains have to do with garden design …. bear with me there is a link.
Kenneth Grange isn’t a household name, though the currant exhibition at The Design Museum in London has brought him to wider attention. He’s been a designer for over 50 years and is responsible for the design of some iconic, everyday items that many of us have grown up with:
- the London taxi
- Kenwood mixers
- Parker pens
- the inter-city train
- Instamatic camera
and many more.
It’s not just his great flair for innovative design that makes him so successful, but his dedication to perfecting his products with real energy and commitment.
Behind every seemingly effortless design there’s a lot of hard work constantly refining and perfecting until the product, whether its a pen, a train or a garden is the best it can be.
This exhibition was so inspiring, it was my first visit to the Design Museum and I’ll definitely be back, as well as the the exhibitions, it’s in a nice spot right next to the River Thames.
What’s you’re favourite museum?
