Pop-Up Garden: The Design Museum Celebrates Summer

The Design Museum in London has collaborated with Swiss design company Vitra to produce a pop-up garden that celebrates the start of summer.

The Design Museum Tank, the glass display area outside the Design Museum, is now home to a pop-up garden on the River Thames riverfront.

Pieces by the design world’s biggest names, including Edward Barber, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Charles and Ray Eames, Jasper Morrison, Jay Osgerby and Verner Panton, have been placed among the greenery and complete the picturesque scene. Some designs are also available to purchase from the Design Museum Shop comprising an eclectic mix of classic furniture and new pieces.

The Pop-Up Garden is on display at the Design Museum from today until June 3, 2013. – Babette Radclyffe-Thomas
