In The Making, curated by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby, captures objects mid-manufacture and puts the aesthetic of the unfinished centre stage. Varying from the £2 coin to a tennis ball, a surprising range of objects have been chosen by Barber and Osgerby to be exhibited in an unfinished state, celebrating the intriguing beauty of the making process and revealing the unexpected quality that everyday objects have before assuming their final, recognisable form.
The exhibition provides a glimpse of the designers’ ongoing dialogue with manufacturing that is so distinctive to their practise. Throughout their careers, Edward and Jay have had a technical curiosity and fascination with the making process. The way in which things are created has had a profound influence on them and continually inspires their work.
These partially-made objects give an insight into the design thinking that has driven this duo to such acclaimed success, including designing the London 2012 Olympic Torch, which went on to be awarded the Design Museum’s Design of the Year 2012.Their multidisciplinary approach challenges the boundaries of industrial design, architecture and art.
