What you need to know

The Design Museum is the world’s leading museum devoted to design in all of its forms, from architecture, to fashion and product design, to name but a few. Located on the fabulous High Street Kensington, it's a creative centre and cultural landmark. As you step into the building itself, it really is something to behold - a superb example of post war architecture which has recently been remodelled by John Pawson. They have carefully brought the building into modern times, whilst ensuring that features such as the stunning paraboloidroof has remained intact. And the event spaces? There are five available to hire – The atrium (available for events from 18.45), the Helene and Johannes Huth Gallery, which is a bright and fresh room with views of Holland Park, the 202 seat Bakala Auditorium, the Ulm and Bauhaus Room as well as the Chumsri and Luqman Lounge. As The Design Museum is an independent registered charity, by holding an event here, you’ll be contributing to their vision of promoting the value of design – worth considering if you’re organising a forward-thinking event.

As you can imagine, everything about this venue illustrates style and each element sitting within the space, from the flooring to the furniture, has been perfectly designed. It works well for both evening and daytime events - the atrium is a fantastic, triple height space for show stopping evening events, with the blank walls and beautiful angular design lending itself well to projection and lighting effects. However, if it’s a slick daytime conference you’re looking to hold, then the state-of-the-art auditorium is the place to be. We can also request private tours of the current exhibitions to add an extra special element for guests.
