A new exhibition at the world’s first museum devoted to modern design will look at how changes in manufacturing and design will effect the modern world.

-- /EPR NETWORK/ -- London's Design Museum has announced its new exhibition for July will be titled The Future Is Here: A New Industrial Revolution. The Design Museum is London's dedicated museum to product, industrial, graphic, fashion and architectural design. It was founded in 1989 and claims to be the world's first museum of modern design. It is located in the neighbourhood of Shad Thames, close to London Bridge and tourists looking for accommodation in the area should visit LondonTown.com, where they will find details of dozens of hotels near London Bridge at all price ranges that are available for booking.

The exhibition that is opening in July will attempt to explore the nature of modern manufacturing, in which thanks to remarkable recent innovations like 3D printing, the boundaries between the designer, manufacturer and consumer are becoming increasingly blurred. There are now significant changes in the way objects are made, the materials they are made of and the type of objects that people use and the exhibition contends that these changes have the potential to affect commerce, industry and the environment as profoundly as any past Industrial Revolution. The Future Is Here exhibition will allow visitors to see some of these manufacturing techniques demonstrated in The Future is Here Factory and find out how they will change the designed world around us.

The Design Museum is located in a former banana warehouse by the Thames, and features a fine café and an excellent bookshop that is dedicated to all aspects of design. The Future Is Here is just one of several exhibitions taking place at the museum in 2013, with a huge retrospective also being planned in November about the renowned British fashion designer Paul Smith.
