Designs of the Year exhibition by Michael Marriott

Designed in Hackney: Hoxton-based designer Michael Marriott created a landscape of cardboard tubes to display items on show at this year's Designs of the Year exhibition at London's Design Museum. The winning entries for each category will be revealed at an awards ceremony tomorrow evening.

Plywood discs slotted on top of each tube provide surfaces at a variety of different heights, while information for each project is presented on balanced steel stands.

Accompanying graphics for the exhibition were created by design studio A Practice for Everyday Life, who are based just outside Hackney in the neighbouring borough of Tower Hamlets.

Designed in Hackney is a Dezeen initiative to showcase world-class architecture and design created in the borough, which is one of the five host boroughs for the London 2012 Olympic Games as well as being home to Dezeen’s offices. We’ll publish buildings, interiors and objects that have been designed in Hackney each day until the games this summer.

    I know I am probably missing some deep conceptual,intellectual, postmodern point here that has been derived from an understanding of the world that I cannot possibly grasp but is that it ? Some cardboard barrels with plywood tops? Please tell me what this means as I do not have the intellect to grasp it.
