Fear and Love, the opening exhibition at the Design Museum in Kensington, presents 11 installations by some of the most innovative and thought provoking designers and architects working today. Telegraph subscribers can purchase afternoon tea at Parabola Restaurant plus tickets to the exhibition for only £25.

Fear and Love’s newly commissioned works explore a spectrum of issues that define our time, including networked sexuality, sentient robots, slow fashion and settled nomads. The exhibition shows how design is deeply connected not just to commerce and culture but to urgent underlying issues, which inspire fear and love. This is a multidisciplinary and global exhibition that aims to capture the mood of the present and establish the Design Museum as the home of design debate.

“When the Design Museum opened in 1989, the first exhibition, Commerce and Culture, was about the value of industrial products,” says Justin McGuirk, chief curator at the Design Museum. “Three decades later, we now take that value for granted. Fear and Love goes further, and proposes that design is implicated in wider issues that reflect the state of the world. By inviting these designers to create installations with such an open brief, the museum presents itself as a laboratory of ideas, and a place for absorbing how the world is changing.”

Parabola, named after the iconic mid-century modern roof of the building housing the new look Design Museum, is a bar café restaurant located within the museum. The afternoon tea will include a selection of finger sandwiches, a scone with clotted cream and jam, plus mini pastries and tea.
