I spent a fun morning at the V&A Museum of Childhood yesterday learning all about their new Space Age exhibition that is opening in November. It will look at the way the space age of the 50s and 60s influenced society, from toys to fashion to fiction. It is going to be a truly fascinating set of displays to wander around. I’ll post more information when the exhibition opens. In the meantime, here’s a picture of one of my favourite space age-looking objects, the Juicy Salif Fruit Juicer by Phillip Stark. Although he says it was inspired by an octopus, it reminds me of a 1950s rocket.
