This exhibition aims to give the public an exclusive insight into the process of developing homeware products, and how Joseph Joseph solves every day problems through intelligent design. The exhibition presents a selection of useful design objects drawn from their entire collection to date and shows the early stages of the creative process through to the final functional design product. The exhibition forms part of WOLFSON EXPLORES Transformation in 2019. 

The show is open to the public in the Combination Room and Gallery at Wolfson College Cambridge on Saturdays and Sundays between 10.00 - 17.00. To avoid disappointment please call the Porters' Lodge 01223 335900 before visiting.
