To celebrate the weather changing for the better, London’s Design Museum has teamed up with furniture company Vitra to create a pop-up garden on the River Thames.

Housed in the museums display area, commonly referred to as “The Tank,” the garden is lush with greenery and features a seating area around The Tank where visitors can relax in the heart of London. You can also get some lunch from the museum’s cafe while taking in views of the Thames and Tower Bridge.


The garden also brings together some of the bigest names in design such as; Charles and Ray Eames, Jasper Morrison, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby and Verner Panton through pieces of furniture both old and new.

If any of the pieces really stand out, all of them are available from the Design Museum Shop to buy.
