The Mercuric Tables are objects with an organic form that seem to have been shaped in clay, sinuous and polished like stones in rivers or on the seashore.

The new Design Museum, slated to open to the public on 24 November 2016, will be one of the most important facilities for contemporary design and architecture, a creative centre with a focus on nurturing innovation while supporting the next generation of design talent.
