Listen to all 6 podcasts in the 'By Design' series


‘By Design, a talk series by Sir John Soane’s Museum in partnership with Luke Irwin in which leading designers discuss an object that has inspired them in some way, and through it discuss and dissect their own design practice.

Will Gompertz, Arts Editor at the BBC, and Alice Rawsthorn, design writer and critic, co-host the series exploring how design has impacted the lives of six internationally-renowned designers, framed around one item which has informed their careers.

The series reflects on the power of objects – large or small, mundane or exceptional, aesthetic or utilitarian – to spark new ideas, and act as a spur for different forms of creativity.
