The Learned Society of Extra Ordinary Objects at Sommerset House

This unique exhibition centres on the power of imagination, narrative and storytelling within design. 30 contemporary designers, artists and makers have been invited to become the new, 21st century Fellows of the Society, and create or contribute objects to this remarkable collection. These new Fellows’ designs will present ordinary objects with extra ordinary stories, or suggest playful and surprising modifications to familiar objects, reimagining our interaction with items we encounter in our everyday lives. The exhibition runs from the 5th of July to the 3rd of September, 2017.
