In this first public event, museum director Deyan Sudjic hosts a conversation with the building’s visionary designer John Pawson, curator and project consultant Daniel Charny and Deputy Director Alice Black. The Design Museum commissioned the exhibition for the display of their permanent collection at their new home. Identifying Designer Maker/Manufacturer and User as the key players in shaping design. This is a new approach to communicating the value and impact of design on people's lives "viewed from the perspectives of designer, manufacturer and user." The Concept of Designer Maker User and the approach to the exhibition structure and interpretation was created by Daniel Charny at From Now On in the capacity of Content and Interpretation consultant. The new permanent collection display is located at the top floor of the museum and houses over 1,000 objects. It is free to public. The full detailing and delivery of the exhibition was done in-house by the DM team with Daniel Charny as lead advisor. Charny also led the content and interpretation on the successful HLF bid that helped secure the funding and expert guidance that enabled the development of this free exhibition
