The display is in two tall display cases and each of the 17 objects is also featured on a huge screen.
Design, manufacture and marketing is now a global process and plastics is a global material. However all the products on display have a UK connection. Some are historical and others of today, including a ruff handmade from used plastic bags by Laura Anne Marsden, Joseph Joseph’s colander with 12 living hinges, D3O’s engineered material that absorbs shock, Kevin Moseley’s SwimFin that aims to place children in an optimum swimming position, and some Polypipe Terrain products that provide a more sustainable solution than traditional materials to drainage and ventilation.
The exhibition will be on until 1 August. Do drop in and have a look.
