Design Research Unit 1942 – 72 A Cubitt Touring Exhibition curated by Michelle Cotton Thursday 13 January – Saturday 12 February 2011

International Project Space presents Design Research Unit 1942–72, a Cubitt Touring Exhibition curated by Michelle Cotton.

Formed in London in 1942, the Design Research Unit was responsible for some of the most important design produced in post-war Britain. It pioneered a model for group practice, being the first consultancy in the country to bring together expertise in architecture, graphics and industrial design. By the 1970s it was one of the largest and most established design offices in Europe. This exhibition is the first of its kind, mapping the history of the group and the currency of their designs. It identifies key examples of their work and documents an approach that was shaped by inter-war developments in artistic discourse and post war trends in industry and communication; in particular the accelerated demand for corporate design.
