Abstract

Design Research Unit: 1942–72 at London’s Cubitt Gallery showcased the work of this mold-breaking design partnership (Figure 1). Founded in 1942 by art critic and poet Herbert Read, with advertising executive Marcus Brumwell and designers Milner Gray and Misha Black, Design Research Unit (DRU) played a central role in redesigning Britain after the Second World War. The Cubitt show, curated by Michelle Cotton, included highlights of DRU’s work across four decades, from its origins in earlier design groups, such as the Industrial Design Partnership, to its work on corporate branding projects in the 1960s and early 1970s.
