Taking design to the Boardroom

There were queues round the block last weekend for the opening of the Design Museum at its new location in Kensington. The development itself has always been controversial; repurposing the former Commonwealth Institute with the assistance of a significant financial contribution from flats built on the boundaries of the site. Reactions to the interior have also been mixed, but with 8,000 visitors on the first day there can be little doubting the public’s interest.
