A career-spanning survey of Kenneth Grange’s work, which includes his design for the InterCity 125 train.

Emphasising the importance of Grange’s smaller, but equally iconic domestic products – including the Parker 25 pen, Kodak Instamatic camera and Kenwood Chef food mixer – a series of backdrop images was created with photographer Angela Moore. Running through both the exhibition and its promotional material, the giant images provided a consistent reminder of the products use a theatrical contrast with the scale and intimacy of the actual object.

Exhibition texts were set in New Rail Alphabet, a version of the British Rail font used on the original InterCity 125 programme, revived in 2009 by Henrik Kubel and Margaret Calvert.

Exhibition design: Jasper Morrison and James Irvine
