Cold War Modern: Design 1945 - 1970

The Victoria & Albert Museum will be hosting an exhibition of Design during the Cold War Period, on both sides of the iron curtain. The permanent collection contains a few items from that period, and I'm looking forward to this much larger exhibition (over 300 exhibits). It promises to include items such as Eames furniture:

Stills from the film '2001: A Space Odyssey' directed by Stanley Kubrick:

Other interesting furniture designs such as the Garden Egg Chair by Peter Ghyz.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this exhibition at the end of the month, and will report with photos if possible. I'm sure the shop will have many interesting items for sale in conjunction with this exhibition.
