This inaugural international Design Against Crime exhibition in 2002 was curated by Gamman et al. and funded by the Design Council, the London Institute, Zeus Studio (Milan, Italy) and Studio O’Flynn (Barcelona, Spain). The main theme of the show was the personal protection of individuals and their homes - and also the protection of customers by corporations through the intelligent use of technology. The exhibition showcased for the first time an extensive range of ingenious products mainly by young British based designers that combined fresh stylish design with simple and effective crime resistant features. The designs proved that anti-crime design can make a difference across a range of design territories, from hi-tech gadgets to wearable tech, from handbags to cafe chairs.
