THE ART OF USEFUL THINGS
from David Usborne's collection
WINDOW GALLERY, CENTRAL ST MARTINS
20th MARCH- 28TH APRIL 2017
A former architect and teacher of design, Usborne has over the last 30 years formed an extraordinary collection of anonymous objects chosen for their elegant shape and puzzling function. These utilitarian and anonymous objects 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. The collection has been successfully exhibited in England, Portugal and Italy.
This exhibition The Art of Useful Things, on display in the Window Gallery of Central St Martins, celebrates the recent donation of his collection to UAL archives to offer inspiration to future generations of their art and design students.
