Current exhibition

Picnic

20th February 2017

In the modern picnic set, plastics materials have replaced traditional china and glass components and wicker hampers have been exchanged for temperature controlling boxes and bags.

The introduction of more robust yet lightweight plastics and their production techniques have influenced style and design. Pack-ability and portability are bywords for the picnic set, making them easy to store and ready to go.

Bright and colourful, multifunctional, space saving, strong and portable, this exhibition celebrates plastic picnic ware and lunch boxes.
