What's On: Hidden Heroes at The Science Museum

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Hidden Heroes is described by its curator as “a celebration of everyday objects and the stories they have to tell about our lives.” From paperclips to bubblewrap, condoms to post-it notes, the exhibition looks at some of the unsung heroes of the design world, fighting overexposure and under-appreciation. It’s an excellent collection and what’s striking is how little the original concepts of these classics has altered over decades – there’s tweaks in materials etc but on the whole great design endures. This well-shoot video provides a great introduction, but if you’re here you should definitely check it out in person.
