No Randomness

The Aram Gallery, London

– 1 April 2017



Why is a stop sign octagonal? Why does a sheet of A4 measure 210 by 297 millimetres? Why does a beer glass have an ugly bulge? The exhibition “No Randomness” takes on such questions to demonstrate that design decisions about everyday products are anything but random.


From packaging peanuts to shower caps, manhole covers to 50 pence coins: the London-based designer and curator Oscar Lhermitte takes the lid of a broad spectrum of everyday objects as he looks at 15 chosen products to explain the logic behind their design. The steadily growing collection is an update of the exhibition that was originally conceived for the International Design Biennale held in Saint-Etienne in 2015. The current exhibition opened on 3 March 2017.
