Getting older is nothing new. In fact, one thing we all have in common is that we’re all ageing.
What is new is the increasing proportion of the UK’s population that will be part of an older, healthier, more financially secure, and technologically savvy demographic. The 21st century is shaping up to be a century of centenarians, with someone born in the year 2000 having a 50% chance of living to their 100th birthday.
‘Designing for our Future Selves’, curated by Design Age Institute and the Design Museum, presents ten innovative design projects that showcase the different ways designers and innovators are reimagining how we will live, work, socialise and spend into our 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and beyond.
