Saul Bass Exhibition

There's a retrospective exhibition of the work of graphics designer Saul Bass running at the Design Museum, London between July 17 and October 10. The Design Museum site is worth a look too. It features a permanent exhibition on designers such as Alvar Alto (architect) Flamino Bertoni (cars) Manolo Blahnik (shoes), Charles and Ray Eames (furniture) Solange Azagury (jewellery) Stefan Sagmeister (graphics) Robert Wilson (theatre). Choose the HTML version of the site. And be patient: it's not the easiest to navigate. If you need a reminder of Saul Bass' work for title sequences to films such as 'Vertigo' and 'Psycho', have trip to Brendan Dawes' online exhibition Saul Bass on the Web. It's a treat!
