The Window Gallery

This exhibition placed art school design in the tradition of the ‘philosophical toy', a device that introduced 19th century audiences to new forms of knowledge via immersive, visceral experiences. In this show new designers achieved a similar combination of enlightenment and enchantment by re-aligning the language of everyday things.
