To help promote its imminenet move, the Design Museum asked Kyle Bean to create a pop-up card of the former Commonwealth Institute that will house the Museum from 2014

Shown here is an A3 protype but A5-sized cards will go on sale at the Design Museum shop later this year. Principally, the cards will be used as a PR exercise to build awareness of the move. The prototype will be on show at the Commonwealth Institue this weekend (September 17-18) as part ofan open day, the last chance the public will have to visit the building before it closes for renovation.

We’ve followed Kyle Bean’s work since first spotting him at his Brighton degree show in 2009 (we featured his paper models of mobile phones here). See more of his work here
