The Hay Festival in Wales
Venue: Guardian Stage
How did the design of a pistol influence a car? Why did a chair make a café the most fashionable place in Paris? What can we learn from a banknote, a police uniform or a typeface? As part of this year’s Guardian Hay Festival, the Director of the Design Museum explores our visual vocabulary.
Tickets are £8.00
