Pop Art and Gin

So, is there a better combination!?

Pop Art Design is the current exhibition at the Barbican, from Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany (which looks worth a visit, just for the architecture).

A great mix of art and design, including all sorts of iconic objects – from the poster dress to the The Studio 65 Bocca Lip Sofa, from 1972:


It’s not my favourite era for design but was still a fascinating collection to browse. More than anything, it highlights the items that were absolutely cutting edge design at the time and how much things have changed!

This exhibition is cheerful and nostalgic, you’ll definitely come out smiling!

What might also make you smile is the new Gin Joint, also at the Barbican.  As its name suggests, a place where you can buy Gin, lots of it, in many different forms.

We indulged in a little gin cocktail each;


A Bramble and a Peppercorn, delicious.
