Get in to Design – Drawing Inspiration From Everyday Objects – 24-26/10/2011
JJAM was asked to develop a three-day workshop for the Design Museum’s ’Get in to Design’ program, based on the theme of our 2010 Everyday Delights exhibition. 12 Participants were asked to use the yellow cleaning duster as a starting point to generate new design ideas, spanning the fields of fashion, graphics, product design and architecture.
Supported by the design team, participants spent three days learning about important steps in the design process: creating a concept, producing an object and presenting the final outcome, which resulted in a mini-exhibition at the Design Museum. The central theme of this workshop is the idea of reinterpretation and the exploration of surprise in the everyday.
JJAM invited curator Pete Collard to think along and product designers Richard Shed and Shell Thomas to help out with the production of the objects. See some of the great results below, amazing what can be achieved in only three days! Thanks to all involved and especially to Komal Khetia from the Design Museum Learning Department for the invitation.
