Everything Forever Now was a British Council-commissioned touring exhibition of design projects curated by Henrietta Thompson, which showcased contemporary design that pioneers sustainable values. The show featured technologies and techniques that promise to change our environment for the better, without preaching or shouting about their green credentials. These are intelligent designs that aim to improve daily life and our relationship with the environment rather than compromise it. Projects on display included Wind Power Limited's Aerogenerator X, Markus Kayser’s Solar Sinter, Julia Lohmann’s Laminarium research and Bethan Laura Wood’s Stain teacups. The exhibition was accompanied by work from local designers in each country, championing similar values. From 2011 to 2012 the exhibition toured to Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Kuala Lumpur and Krakow.
