THE work of an innovative designer has been transformed into a new collection of merchandise by a museum where his work is one of its key exhibits.
Visitors to Middlesbrough’s Dorman Museum can now pick up souvenirs based on the work of 19th century designer Christopher Dresser.
The museum, on Linthorpe Road, is developing a major new gallery to house its collection of decorative art material designed by him.
His influential and innovative work saw him acknowledged as the world’s first industrial designer and he also founded Middlesbrough’s renowned Linthorpe Pottery.
The newly-launched Christopher Dresser Collection features key rings, fridge magnets, coasters and ceramic mugs decorated with the Dresser’s unique designs.
