To coincide with the 2012 Olympics, the Design Museum
in association with Oakley
have curated, Designed to Win
, an exhibition showcasing outstanding design & innovation in sport and celebrating "the ways in which design and sport are combined, pushing the limits of human endeavour to achieve records and victories of increasing significance and wonder".
It looks at the relationship between design and sport; how design has progressed some sport, how sport has influenced design and how this relationship has led to winning performances.
The exhibition opened today and runs until 18 November 2012 so there's plenty of time to get down there and see it (for your own sanity though, it's probably best to wait until the Olympic circus has left town).Images copyright Justine AW (Rugenius).Via Notcot.

A DR. G. Fischer Autolicht car bulb for a Helphos spotlight (left), a British Electric Lamps Ltd. decorative bulb and a neon crucifix light bulb. Maybe I'll start collecting these too!
Auto Type XXII
- Always a petrol heads dream, Goodwood Festival of Speed didn't disappoint again this year. Although there's a high percentage of new stuff, there's still plenty of oldies. Here's a selection... enjoy!

#127 - Post Office Telegram, 14 November 1946
. I picked this up at a car boot sale last summer. The envelope is only slightly bigger than a business card and made from extremely thin paper (as is the telegram).
I bought it because the simplicity of the type on the envelope attracted my attention- clear and functional, with no hint at the message inside. In this case a happy one ' [to] Brown 9 Watsons Walk St-Albans= Congratulations on your 21 st birthday love= Jean D+

#126 - Disque de controle do stationnement
(a vintage French parking control). Another dial for my collection, and a variation of one I already have. The only difference is that this one advertises 'Vittel' water, and my other
is advertises Citreon cars.
