While the new Design Museum isn’t open quite yet, the shop is already up and running and provides a tiny sneak preview into architect John Pawson’s vision for the museum. Colorful design objects, gadgets, toys, and gizmos are carefully arranged on a Vitsoe shelving system on dark grey walls, creating a beautiful and contrasting display. It’s a great selection of small, affordable gifts and more high-concept pieces for the real design lover like John Pawson designed ceramic bowls, a Barber & Osgerby teapot, Artek’s Alvar Aalto stools and the like. It all bodes well for the grand opening in late November.
