More than 300 objects have been drawn from the V&A collections and elsewhere with the aim of showing how designers born, trained and working in the UK have been at the forefront of post-war and contemporary design.

From the nostalgic decadence of the Jaguar E-type and the cetacean curves of the London 2012 Aquatics Centre to posters promoting the Sex Pistols and Robin Day's Polyprop Chair, this rich, eclectic exhibition will explore themes of tradition, modernity, subversion and innovation.
