David Usborne: The Art of Useful Things

User-added image

20 Mar - 28 Apr 2017

An exhibition sourced from a collection of objects donated to UAL by David Usborne, a retired architect and teacher of design (formerly a lecturer in the history of design at the Central School , Southampton Row).

The objects, most of which can be seen at www.object-ivity.com, are utilitarian and anonymous and will be of interest to designers and sculptors both because of the puzzle of their function (which is not always obvious), and the elegance of their form.

This collection has been successfully exhibited in England, Portugal and Italy.
