As a prelude to the introduction of one moquette to rule them all London Transport Museum hosts an evening about the history and future of its iconic seat covering fabric this week.
The designers of the new textile will talk and there is a guided tour of the museum's bonkers, multimedia Design for Travel gallery. For those who like to get hands on - apart from the essential pretend to drive a tube train and a bus bit - The Make Lounge run a make and take workshop for you to create bespoke moquette patterned drinking glasses to show off at your next Come Dine With Me London Transport themed geek out dinner party.
Moquette for London is at London Transport Museum on Wednesday 22 September between 6.30-9.30pm. Tickets £18/15/12.50: call 020 7565 7298 to reserve yours now. Part of the London Design Festival.
