|Well it'll be 41 now|
Yesterday spent some time at what was the Commonwealth Institute and what will be in 41 days time the 'New' home for London's Design Museum - I was volunteer tour guide for about 18 months at the previous Bermondsey incarnation and am hoping to be involved with the November re-boot.
As you can read (from Wallpaper) here it's been quite a transformation
The shop is already open and it's got the high end stuff we all like - being in the building there's something of a pre-launch buzz and expectations are high - 3 times the space of the old former banana Warehouse and expecting a similar multiple on the visitors.

So there's a bit of a media blackout on the new Design Museum in terms of internal photographs but I can reveal that it's well design-ery, nice clean lines and a setting for exhibitions that won't distract.
Sir Terence Conran (the prime mover behind the establishment of the Design Museum) had a bit of a birthday bash (his 85th) last week and I gather that what they have so far seemed to work okay.
Expect something of a media storm as the go-live date gets close
Perhaps a bit subtle? But it was at the Design Museum (behind the trees) and those are very Red strides
