London Design Festival 2017 — WATER — London, UK — 19-24 SEP 2017
Copeland Gallery, Bussey Building, Peckahm
Water is an exhibition that brings together a diverse group of designers to explore one of the most important materials on Earth. Water fundamentally shapes our environment, materials and products we live with. It is the reason why the concrete on our buildings, the wood in our tables, and the plastics in our devices exist. It is used to define units of measurement in science, such as the litre and the kilogram. It can generate energy by moving enormous propellers with its immense force. It can alter geography in the form of tsunamis, glaciers, rivers and monsoons. Its properties are studied to find ways to clean our oceans. Its absence can create turmoil, being a scarce resource for most countries.
