The website of London's Design Museum contains a wealth of resources. Explore the illustrated history of architecture and design, from the Anglepoise lamp to Buckminster Fuller. Read an interview with Dan Houser of Rockstar Games. Ponder the evolution of the humble chair.

I hate how you can't sit on the chairs on display in design museums. How can you really appreciate a chair if you can't sit on it?

Thanks for this; I'll definitely go on my next trip south.

I hate museums in general. What's the point of going to see the Mona Lisa if you can't put a moustache on it?

The Eames show in Vienna many moons ago had a couple of chairs out that could be sat in. It was heavenly.
