Celebrate a designer whose patterns and colours are immediately recognisable, in the first exhibition dedicated to Orla Kiely in the UK.

With her stylised graphic designs featured on everything from mugs and notebooks to dresses and cars, Kiely is one of the UK and Ireland’s most successful designers with a global reach.

Over 150 items are on display including patterns, products and collaborations with photographers, film directors and architects. Highlights include the original paper sketches for her famous ‘Stem’ graphic, created in the 1990s, and prototypes of her early signature bags. The retrospective examines how Kiely works and what inspires her as well as exploring the role of decoration in 21st-century life.
