New home on Kensington High Street, in the building that hosted the Commonwealth Institute, designed by John Pawson. The ambition? To become the most important design museum in the world. 

To help the museum achieve its dream - at a total cost of 83 million pounds - a rich charity auction at Phillips’ on 28 April. Pieces donated by the great names in international design - Marc Newson, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid and many others, almost none is missing - include Bono’s guitar, a special edition of iPad Pro, designed by ApplÈs Jony Ive, and… Papyro by Aldo Rossi, a gift of the Molteni Museum.
