    Yesterday we were privy to the unveiling of the Design Museum’s new permanent collection of 20th-century design ‘Extraordinary Stories about Ordinary Things’; a celebration of everyday objects and the exceptional stories behind them.

    Structured in six key sections including National identity, Modernism, Fashion, Plastics, Collecting and a section profiling the iconic Anglepoise lamp, the exhibition reveals the impact that everyday design has had on our lives. From the ubiquitous motorway sign to the lesser known designs of the modernist era, it’s essential viewing if you love design.

    There are too many brilliant designs to list, but here are some of our favourites from the collection (open to the public from today):

    Cesca armchair (1928), Marcel Breuer

    G-force cyclonic vacuum cleaner (1986), James Dyson

    Jim Nature Portable Television (1994), Philippe Starck

    4814 Poltrona Armchair (1987), Anna Castelli-Ferrieri
