All Dyson technology is developed in his top-secret Research, Design and Development (RDD) facility and - Willy Wonka style - only now will the Design Museum Gent reveal what happens behind those tightly closed doors.

The exhibition presents designer glass and porcelain made by contemporary Czech companies, showing how traditional techniques have been transformed in the 21st century. It's great to see that traditional craftsmanship and techniques are still so important to the Czech Republic's economy, in such a fast moving world where mass production can so often take over.

What? 'Bernard Tschumi'
Where? Centre Pompidou. Paris, France.
When? Now, until 28th July 2014

Bernard Tschumi played a key role in architecture during the second half of the 20th century and his practice still continues to push the boundaries of the built environment.  He's best known for a selection of pillar-box red enamled folie's, mathematically placed throughout Paris's Parc de la Villette, in an audacious re-imagining the very premise of the park itself. The exhibition is the first major retrospective in France of the work of the architect and theorist. It presents nearly 300 original works, showcasing how he notably helped to introduce the concept of deconstruction into the field of architecture, which has had a decisive influence on architectural production and theory. For an extra treat, you'll also see original works, many of which have never been on show before.
