London’s Design Museum [2] has formed a new partnership with furniture company Vitra [3] to create a pop-up garden [4] on the banks of the River Thames. The garden will showcase pieces by some of the design world’s biggest names, including Charles and Ray Eames [5], Jasper Morrison, Jay Osgerby and Verner Panton in a colorful prefab case.

The pop-up garden is located on the River Thames, right outside the Design Museum. Overgrown with grass, the garden features seating areas which allow visitors to relax in a space which marks a new partnership between the museum and Swiss design company Vitra [7]. All the pieces on display can be bought in the museum’s shop.
