DESIGN MUSEUM DISPLAYS THE WIRE
The Wire is currently on show at The Design Museum in London, as part
of its 'Under A Tenner' exhibition. The Design Museum invited fourteen
people with different perspectives on design to choose ten examples -
as long as they were all available under £10 - which represented their
idea of "good design". Dutch graphic design company Experimental Jetset
picked The Wire (designed by Non-Format) because "The Wire is an
intelligent, inspirational thoroughly honest music magazine. In both
design and content, the reader is taken seriously without a trace of
cynicism". As well as issues #245 (July) and #249 (November) the
exhibition also features a cardboard toilet, a Bic biro and a Brazilian
flip flop amongst other exhibits. Until 27 February 2005, Design
Museum, Shad Thames, London, SE1, £6 (£4 conc).
