The Design Museum celebrates over 110 years of modern and contemporary design in all aspects of life. The collection captures key designs which have shaped the world, including the Face magazine, the Vespa and iMac. The revolving exhibition which is constantly updated to include new design classics, varies in theme from a Manolo Blahnik's Shoe Design, Formula 1 Cars to the History of Video Games and Daniel Weil Timepieces. The museum also runs Designer of the Year which awards a prize to a person or organisation that has produced an impressive piece of design (past winner was Jonathan Ive, who designed the iMac and iPod).
