Opening on November 18, 2009, Ergonomics – Real Design focuses attention on the thought and science behind ergonomics. Fusing understanding of human performance with design and engineering, ergonomic design creates objects and products that are safe and efficient. Prototypes and interactive displays reveal the scope of ergonomic design in daily life – from the tape measure to the tv remote.
The exhibition is presented as a joint venture between the Design Museum and Brunel University and made possible via a grant from Engineering and Physical Science Research Council under its Partnerships for Public Engagement Programme. The exhibition will run until March 7, 2009.
