Going to the opening of the Design Museum in its grand new west London emporium has made me think about its antecedent Boilerhouse Project which was no more than a creative cell in the basement of the V&A where Stephen Bayley held court in a glass office surrounded by piles of magazines. I have discovered that John Pawson actually designed one of the early exhibitions which I half remember – a big wedge which required one to crouch down in order to see the objects on display. The other exhibition I remember was an exhibition on Taste in which Stephen had asked various luminaries to select objects representative of their taste. Alexander Shouvaloff, the then Director of the Theatre Museum, selected Michelin maps. I hope and assume (actually, I think I know) that someone is documenting its history.
