Design Museum Launched Adopt an Object Campaign

Design Museum of London has launched a new campaign called 'Adopt and Object'. Members of the Design Museum will adopt one of 12 significant products from the museum's permanent collection by only paying £5 for each and will help it move to its new location in Kensington.

By adopting an object, members will get a special thank you film of their objects, names will be listed on Design Museum website, will get annual updates of your adopted object and will have chance to help make the most inspiring, exciting and engaging Design Museum in the world.
