The relocation of London’s Design Museum marks a significant expansion for the institution. It’s moving from a former banana warehouse in Shad Thames to the Grade II-listed former Commonwealth Institute Building in Kensington. John Pawson, the architect who led the design team behind the project, and the museum’s deputy director Alice Black took Monocle’s Henry Rees-Sheridan on a tour to explain the thinking behind the relaunch.

Singapore’s design scene benefits from being a bridge between Asia and the English-speaking world. Asylum is a multidisciplinary design firm that works across retail, graphics and interiors and is doing much to boost the city-state’s credentials in this regard. Monocle’s Josh Fehnert sat down with founder Chris Lee to discuss the firm’s latest interiors project: a soon-to-open Singapore hotel in a converted riverside warehouse.
